Raising A Reader Creates a Love of Books

Posted on July 9, 2009, by United Way in Education

United Way's Raising A Reader is a proven early literacy program that strives to break the cycle of poverty by empowering low-income families to create book-sharing routines. Research shows that sharing books with young children, age 0-5, promotes early brain development, stimulates social and emotional growth, and inspires a life-long love of learning and books.

Recently EdcuationMatters.tv, a show that profiles Bay Area education programs, featured Sara Levine, director of Raising A Reader Alameda County, and the teachers, children and families of Martin Luther King Child Development Center in West Oakland.
