Raising A Reader MA’s Summer Story Time in the Parks


Organization: Raising A Reader MA
We help families learn how to share books at home because research shows children do better in school if they are read to before starting kindergarten.
PROGRAM SNAPSHOT:

Location of Program's Recipients:
Children who benefit from Raising A Reader MA go to preschool/day care in or near the following cities: Boston, Brockton, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Lawrence, Lowell, Malden, Medford, Revere and Somerville.
Who Benefits from Support:
Raising A Reader MA’s Summer Story Times in the Park will give more than 700 little kids (newborn to age 5) summer time reading activities. The kids we work with have parents who are not sharing books with them at home for many reasons. These include not having enough money to buy books, not knowing how libraries work, not being home at bed time because of their jobs, or not being comfortable with their own reading abilities.
Fast Fact:
By the time they start school, children in low-income families have heard 30 million fewer words than children from middle class families.
Raised: $23
Needed: $16,732
