I Am Raising A Reader v2

Information for Affiliates and Organizations

Parents everywhere want their children to have the very best experiences—the kind they will need to help them grow and develop. But it is not always easy to know what’s best. Is it research  based or is it just popular? With so many “experts,” so much technology, and so little time, it can  be difficult to make sense of the dizzying number of options available. Since 1999, Raising A Reader has helped over a million families develop, practice, and maintain  home-based literacy routines that have been linked to academic and life success. We are proud  to continue our commitment to high quality, high impact programming through our new  family-friendly digital program, I Am Raising A Reader v2.

I Am Raising A Reader v2 offers innovative digital and print resources that allows families to  engage in their homes and at their convenience. Families everywhere will now be able to say,  â€œI Am Raising A Reader!”

Parent interviews indicated that this type of program likely fills a real need for families—i.e. a need and ‘desire’ for reading/academic activities and materials to engage their children during the summer that is not part of a formal program.
