90% of a child's brain develops in the first five years of life?
The most influential people in the process of learning to read are parents.
So that’s how we designed the Reading Tub. We provide parents and caregivers free, vetted resources for helping young readers. In addition to reviews, our articles, tips, and exercises are available immediately so that busy parents can access tools even on short breaks on the job.
Ultimately, we want to build app-like capabilities. Smart phone access has nearly surpassed broad band internet access even among those living near the poverty level.
Getting to the next step takes funding … as does keeping our content available to everyone for free. We are powered by volunteers and your donations.
Thank you in advance for all you do to help young readers and their families.
Other Ways to Help
Rather than spend big dollars on fancy events, we have opted for a grass-roots model built around communities of people committed to making a difference in the lives of children.
Crowd-funding campaigns for critically important projects are complemented by passive fundraising efforts that give back – but don’t cost you a penny!
