Succeeding Begins with Reading Book Drive
Each year Starling Agency and Blossoming Buds team up to collect books on behalf of Page Ahead Children’s Literacy Program. Page Ahead is a wonderful foundation that builds awareness about the importance of early literacy in under-served/high-risk populations. Since 1990, Page Ahead has placed over 2.3 million books into the hands of 650,000 at-risk children across Washington State. Page Ahead operates on one simple and astounding fact: being read to as a child is the foremost predictor of academic success in childhood. If a child can read at grade level by 3rd grade, they will continue to read at grade level throughout their academic career. A child who succeeds in school is more likely to thrive beyond graduation. Succeeding begins with reading!
