Read aloud

Read Aloud 15 MINUTES is the “pink ribbon” campaign of parent engagement and early childhood learning.  We hope to reach 250 million Americans by 2022 with the Campaign.  We expect reading aloud 15 minutes every day to be the parenting standard for our nation. Information: http://www.readaloud.org/index.html.
