A Lasting Effect
Due to advances in brain imaging, research strongly suggests that reading to young children beginning in early infancy has a lasting effect on brain and language development and eventual school success. Family Reading Partners works with parents to encourage early reading and conversations around books with their children.
“My passion for Family Reading Partners is based on the knowledge that I am making a significant and lasting impact on the future of the children and their families.”
– Susan A., Volunteer
Family Reading Partners’ Programs are informed by current research:
“Family Reading Partners volunteers are fabulous! They provide high quality books and talk with mothers about the importance of reading. Our parents really learn how to read books, and have conversations around them that stimulate brain development in their children and set a great foundation for eventual literacy. Our families love FRP!”
