March is Read Aloud Month

“Reading aloud is not only the single most important thing a parent or caregiver can do to help prepare a child for reading and learning; it’s also a magical connection through the interaction between you, your child, and the book.” –

make the magical connection Read Aloud to a Child

Join us for Read Aloud Month and help every parent understand how reading aloud 15 minutes every day from birth through 3rd grade builds a child’s brain and lifelong learning capacity.

Reading Aloud Connects Hearts and Minds

Reading Aloud ..

  • .. makes a connection between the things your baby loves the most – your voice and your touch – and books. And, you are building your baby’s brain too.
  • .. creates everlasting bonds, generating memories that will last a lifetime.


Just 15 Minutes a Day is all it Takes!
