Stop, Drop & Read – Weds. April 13

Did you know young children need to hear 1000 stories read aloud before they begin to read themselves? The Evanston Early Childhood Community is trying to raise the level of awareness and collaboration around the importance of reading with our children at an early age to build a strong foundation of literacy skills.

On Wednesday, April 13th at exactly 10:15 AM, children in early childhood programs and home day cares throughout Evanston will STOP, DROP & READ, no matter where they are, all at the same time.  Inspired by the Cradle to Career initiative, this effort is being coordinated by the Early Childhood Director’s Council which represents 33 early childhood programs, including District 65’s preschools and Evanston home day cares.  Please grab a few favorites and join our community as we STOP, DROP & READ!
