In the month of March we are partnering up with Reach Out and Read Oklahoma to support more children to have books to read and to inspire them to get active! With this month being the month of Read Across America, which is a program that focuses on motivating children to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources, we wanted to get involved!
About Reach Out and Read:
Reach Out and Read pediatricians hand out books at the start of well child visits. The program begins at the 6 month checkup and continues until the age of 5 with a special emphasis on children growing up in low income communities.
1 out of 3 children enter kindergarten without the basic skills they need to learn how to read.
Children served by Reach Out and Read:
- Read to more often by parents
- Develop larger vocabulary
- Demonstrate stronger language skills
- Start school with a 6 month developmental edge over their peers
About Our Partnership:
With my teaching background I know the importance of early reading and Reach Out and Read’s vision aligns beautifully with our vision here at Totally For Me. And so a partnership was created!
Our book “Running Is Totally For Me” usually sells for $9.99.
During this partnership only you can buy two books for $12.99!
This allows you to buy one, give one! For three extra dollars you can provide a book to a child growing up in a low income community!
This gift of a book can impact children’s reading skills, educational future and life for years to come!
Take Action Now!
Buy One, Give One!
