Committed to providing positive, meaningful and effective literacy support for developing readers.

Kids Read believes:

  • Each child is a unique learner with his or her own strengths, abilities and outlook.

  • Sharing the joy and instilling the love of reading is key to help children move from learning to read to reading to learn.

  • Children learn best in a positive and socially engaging context.

  • The focus should be on teaching kids to read rather than teaching reading to kids.

  • Families, educators, libraries and and community members all want to see children become literate and successful.

Our focus:

  • We seek to bridge the gap and strengthen connections between home, school and community.

  • As a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency, we value collaborating with other nonprofits that support children and their families.

  • We organize opportunities for children to engage in authentic reading experiences outside the classroom.

  • We partner with libraries, educators and hundreds of community volunteers to meet the needs of developing readers.

Working together:

  • Kids Read works with families to provide resources that support their child's reading development.

  • Kids Read works with educators to facilitate reading practice outside the classroom.

  • Kids Read works with libraries to promote the love of reading and provide access to literacy resources and support.

  • Kids Read works with community members to equip them to effectively read with children.

  • The reach and effectiveness of families, educators, libraries and members of the community can be extended through collaboration with Kids Read.
