Early Learning Readiness

Beginning Babies with Books

Beginning Babies with Books provides workshops to the parents of young children, often including individuals with literacy issues of their own.  We collaborate with a variety of social service and health care organizations to support them through education, and discussions promoting reading, curiosity, critical thinking, and healthy habits.  We also distribute books to families with young children to support literacy in the home.
