Reading Ready Pittsburgh believes in the power of family book sharing

to ensure all children are ready to thrive in kindergarten.

 

By increasing access to books and encouraging significant family engagement,

we work to guarantee that all families have the tools and resources they need

to support their children.

 

All children deserve full book shelves.
