Take a moment to think back to your childhood. What is your earliest memory of reading or being read to by someone? That moment in time was when you started to develop language skills that would serve as the foundation for your learning.
Early literacy is so important for developing those critical early reading skills. In support of early literacy community efforts, Donna Corcoran, Kellie Piekutowski, Nicki Sutherland, Marcia Zboril and I have collaborated with the Lake County Health Department’s Reach Out and Read program. Since 2008, we have conducted book drives and have donated 12,173 new or gently used books for Lake County children ages 6 months to 5 years old!!! Impressive work. And we’re not done yet!
