According to Read Aloud Lincoln, only 48% of young children in the U.S. are read to each day. Research shows that early reading experiences, opportunities to build vocabularies, and literacy-rich environments are the most effective ways to support the development of pre-reading and cognitive skills that ensure that children are prepared for success in school, including grade-level reading, and throughout life.

As you begin your spring semester, apply for the MLK Reading Challenge Monday, January 20. Registration will be open from Friday, January 13, to Friday, January 20. Individuals will sign up for one hour time slots to read and do activities with children from 1-10 years old. Interested student organizations can also sign up to “adopt” a child center and sign up for multiple slots!
