Thank you for taking the Read to a Child Pledge!

We are so glad to welcome you as part of the growing number of Americans who are joining together to work towards a day when every child has a caring adult reading to him or her regularly.  Together, we can impact the future of our country.

Now that you’ve taken the pledge, you may want to learn more about why reading aloud is so powerful in gaining literacy skills. Consider ordering the Read-Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease, which inspired our founder, for tips and tools for reading to a child and support Read to a Child at the same time.
