Mission Statement

Through the fun of reading and being read-to, Read Aloud America promotes literacy, bonds families, and builds communities of lifetime readers.

Description

Founded in Hawaii in 1995, Read Aloud America is a nonprofit 501(C)3 organization that promotes literacy, encourages a love of reading in adults and children, and increases children's prospects for success in school and life through the Read Aloud Program (RAP).

RAP draws parents and children together for six sessions every other week in the early evening to share good books. Its goals are to reach families and stimulate their interest in reading, decrease television viewing, increase family time spent in reading activities, and connect the values of good books to everyday life. Families who participate in RAP build Family Reading Handbooks and receive free books, reading lists, and pizza dinners.
