Read Aloud 15 MINUTES is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that is working to make reading aloud every day for at least 15 minutes the new standard in child care. When every child is read aloud to for 15 minutes every day from birth, more children will be ready to learn when they enter kindergarten, more children will have the literacy skills needed to succeed in school, and more children will be prepared for a productive and meaningful life after school.
Reading aloud is the single most important thing a parent or caregiver can do to improve a child’s readiness to read and learn.
By making 15 minutes of daily reading aloud the new parenting standard, we will change the face of education in this country.
During the first two years of its decade long campaign, Read Aloud 15 MINUTES has forged a unique and growing coalition of partners to put before the entire nation a simple and powerful message:
Read Aloud 15 MINUTES. Every child. Every parent. Every day.
