Raising Readers is a unique program that provides a common experience of shared books all across Maine for children of the same ages (birth to five). Early childhood programs that use these same books build on a relationship that started in the child’s healthcare provider’s office, was fostered at home and reinforced in childcare settings. In short, this program allows us to wrap our young children in literacy and declare our commitment to literacy in a unified voice from Ogunquit to Fort Kent!
Materials used in the program and made available on this website are designed to encourage these groups to work together to support the early literacy development of Maine’s youngest children.
