Help Children Succeed

For communities to succeed, all children must succeed. You can help! Join us in supporting families, schools and communities to ensure every child learns to read early and well to reach his or her full potential in school and in life.

The Children’s Reading Foundation partners with organizations and individuals to share our message, Read with a Child 20 Minutes Every Day, and to deliver our early literacy and learning programs in communities coast-to-coast. Our collective efforts, from the time a child is born, will ensure all children are prepared to start school ready and read on grade level by the end of third grade.
