Did you know that less then half of children under age 4 are read to daily in the United States? The many benefits of reading to a child are powerful and long-lasting. Make a pledge to read to the children in your life every day.

Watch these parents make a commitment to read to their children and then make the pledge yourself because you want the best for your family!

“I pledge to read to you.”

I pledge to read to you every day.
I pledge to read to you any time, any place.
I pledge to read to you so you will grow up loving books and reading.
I pledge to read to you because it gives you the words you need for life.

Reading to you builds your curiosity and makes you want to know more.

I pledge to read to you because it will give you a better chance in school.
I pledge to read to you later, if you don’t want to listen right now.

When I read to you and spend time with you, we are making memories together.

I pledge to read to you even after you can read yourself.
I pledge to read to you because I want the best for you.
I pledge to read to you because I love you.
