Review for Make Way For Books, Tucson, AZ, USA
I first got involved in Make Way for Books because the first three to five years of a child's life are so important in mental and emotional development. Some literacy groups work with school age children which is good, but many kids already have a word gap by the time they start kindergarten and never catch up. Make Way for Books focuses on infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
Books are a luxury that poor families can't afford but want for their children. The time a parent spends reading with a child not only develops his/her vocabulary and interest in learning, but it also creates a positive bond between parent and child. At Make Way for Books, parents can select books to keep for their kids and also get tips on making reading time the very best.
