Raising A Reader

Raising A Reader is an early literacy and family engagement program for children that helps families develop book sharing routines with their child.

Raising A Reader is allows children to take home a Red Book Bag filled with quality books. This gives parents and children the knowledge about the importance of early literacy. By promoting “book cuddling” among families, Raising A Reader is strengthening relationships and building early reading skills in preschool children.

This program is implemented in the Tyrrell Elementary School.
