Family Reading Partners
Geared towards families who want to improve home literacy, Family Reading Partners (FRP) provides opportunities for families to come together and explore carefully chosen books. Facilitated by experts, this gathering includes a research component showing that adult/child interaction around literacy impacts children’s academic success. The families keep the books to add to their home collections. In addition, there are conversation cards provided with the books that suggest ideas for expanding the conversation.
FRP is an award-winning, research-informed program:
