Let’s Read is a community-based literacy strategy to reach parents early in their children’s lives to promote language and literacy development.
Parent resource programs (OEYCs, BBKC) provide parent guidance and Newborn Literacy Kits to parents and their infants.
Health care providers at participating medical clinics provide parent guidance and a free toddler board book at the enhanced 18 month well baby medical visit.
