Have you heard of Target’s Read with Me program? This brilliant initiative is designed to help youngsters become proficient at reading by the end of third grade — an important milestone when kids transition from learning to read, to reading to learn. As part of the Read with Me initiave, Target has generously pledged to donate more than $500 million by the end of 2015, bringing the grand total to more than $1 billion donated!
The most important thing you can do to help, is to commit to a regular schedule of reading to (or with) your child. The good news is, committing to a reading schedule is easy and fun!! We visit our local library at least once a week to gather all sorts of interesting books, and set aside time for reading every day — our girls love it!
