Take the February #ReadtoME Challenge

The Maine Department of Education is sponsoring the #ReadtoME challenge for the month of February to raise awareness of the importance of early childhood literacy.

 Reading aloud to children not only provides a bonding experience with caring adults, but the simple act of reading aloud to a child 15 minutes a day for five years results in 27,375 minutes of language exposure which can put children on the path to high literacy achievement.
