Raising a Reader Mother’s Day Campaign

Raising a Reader is a children’s literacy program that encourages families to embrace the love of reading. Each week, children in the program take home a signature “red bag,” which is filled with “high-quality, developmentally appropriate, multilingual and multicultural children’s books.” Program facilitators get the kids excited about reading in the classroom, then support families at home in learning critical literacy strategies together.

You can help support this amazing program AND honor your mother this Mother’s Day by donating funds for a book in her name. From the Raising a Reader Mother’s Day Campaign website:

Honor someone who has made a difference in your life this Mother’s Day by purchasing Raising A Reader books in her name. Let your own childhood book sharing experience be an inspiration to other families every week. On Mother’s Day, your Mom will receive a gorgeous e-card, letting her know about your gift. We’ll individualize your gift book(s) with a lovely bookplate honoring your Mom, and include it in the Raising A Reader book rotation, where it can inspire countless families to share the joy of reading! Prices start at $12.00.

Flowers die and chocolates don’t last, but the gift of early literacy is something that stays with a child for their lifetime. Visit the Raising a Reader Mother’s Day Campaign site to get started!

*Disclosure: There are several Raising a Reader programs throughout the country, but the links to this specific Mother’s Day Campaign go to support the San Francisco/Alamada counties affiliate. I was raised in the San Francisco area, so this is close to home for me. I also have a friend that works for this particular branch, and I am posting this in support of her efforts.
