Ready Readers STL

When children are young, their eyes, ears and brains work together at an astonishing pace to begin making sense of the world. Reading to children during this time is key to building vocabulary and establishing the foundation for literacy and lifelong learning.

At Ready Readers, we send trained volunteers into classrooms in low-income communities to read aloud to young children, sparking imaginations and building early literacy skills in preparation for kindergarten.

We stock classroom shelves with new, high-quality books and provide books for each child to keep and enjoy at home. Together with our community partners, we provide literacy-related experiences to extend kids’ love of reading beyond the classroom walls.
