National Read to a Child Day - October 20th!

This day marks a national movement to raise awareness of the literacy crisis among under-resourced communities in the United States, as well as the immense value of providing books and reading aloud in the quest to improve literacy rates and empower children!

On October 20th, Read to a Child encourages adults across the country to pick up a book and read aloud to a child in their life. We encourage you to take this national moment to support those children in the Read Aloud Mentoring Program with a donation and advance the literacy cause.

Share your favorite story and use the hashtag #readtoachild on social media to spread the joy!
