Reading aloud to young children is the single most effective thing a parent can do to help prepare them to succeed in school.
Kevin Youkilis’ Youk’s Kids and Reach Out and Read are teaming up to make sure that children of military families in Massachusetts and Rhode Island are prepared to succeed in school! Help give military families a story to read by donating books at supporting locations or contributing online.
By donating new books from our age-appropriate list at sponsoring locations, your generosity ensures that families have books in their homes, and are encouraged to read them. That one simple act will change the future for our children. More than 1,800 books are needed to support Reach Out and Read Programs at military sites in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
