Because 85% of brain development occurs in the first three years of life, it is important to expose children to rich, engaging vocabulary to set the foundation for cognitive ability, literacy, and school readiness.

Research has shown that children who enter Kindergarten "prepared" and ready to learn will be less likely to be held back in school, drop out, require special educational services, develop chronic health problems or enter the criminal justice system.

We currently have more than 3,300 LOCAL children enrolled in the program and receiving books every month! While free to families, this is at a cost of $25 per child, per year to TFAE. Your support will help us fund this important project for our community!
