Read to Grow's mission is to improve early literacy for all Connecticut children by providing books, by helping families share books with their babies beginning at birth, by encouraging language development, and by promoting an awareness of existing literacy resources. Recent neuroscience research shows that the birth to three is a critical period for brain development and language acquisition. Child development studies show that children who are read to from an early age enter school better prepared to learn, regardless of socioeconomic background. Our goal is to help parents understand the critical connection between verbal stimulation, language development and future literacy. By reading aloud to children beginning at birth, parents can help their children develop the early literacy skills they will need to succeed in school and in life.
