Thank you so much for your support in Page Ahead! As many of you know, Page Ahead's number one program is Book Up Summer, which puts 12 books in the hands of kids in K - 2nd grade (that they choose, virtually this and last year). This has been proven to be just as effective as summer school to stop the "summer learning slide," which is so very important this year with remote learning and limited access to books.
I have been on the Page Ahead board for three years, and I head the Donor Engagement Committee. I have three children in high school, and I still read to my son every night! I am a passionate reader, and I always have been. My parents like to remind me that I used to watch Sesame Street every day, sound out the letters on TV, and then head back to my room to read Mother Goose until it was too tattered to use.
I believe in the power of books and have seen the power of a home library for the kids we serve. These books are cherished.
Thank you for your support!
