Read to Them


Read to Them educates families and schools on the benefits and importance of reading aloud at home. A growing body of research describes the complex and permanent effects of reading aloud. Children who are read to learn to read more easily and become better readers. Literacy skills provide the basis for a lifetime of learning and productivity.

Students and families across Virginia will participate in a state-wide family reading event called Virginia Reads One Book in February of 2018.  With the active support of sponsors like the Washington Redskins and the Virginia Council on Economic Education, thousands of Virginia students, families, and schools will read The Lemonade War and celebrate both family and financial lite.

Virginia Reads One Book is brought to you by Read to Them, a Richmond based non-profit whose mission is to create a culture of literacy in every home. Read to Them provides resources that explain the value of reading aloud and a host of materials so that schools use can use classic children’s books to explore and celebrate literature together. Through programs like Virginia Reads One Book, Read to Them helps schools teach families how to make reading together a habit and create lifelong readers.
