Families: The Heart of Learning

There’s nothing quite like a family. 

And when it comes to learning, there’s nothing that can replace a family connection.

When children see the trusted adults in their lives being curious, learning, exploring, playing with words and discovery and literacy, it accelerates their own learning. It sets them on a path to school success, to reading for both enjoyment and for knowledge, and to lifelong learning.

There are so many ways to champion literacy for families! Here are snapshots of two Texas programs making a difference.

South Texas Literacy Coalition
