Parents & Community Organizations

Parents and families play an important role in a child’s literacy development. Your preschool or community groups can arrange to host a parent workshop by Bringing Books to Life.

Parents reading to childrenLoving & Learning Family Literacy Workshops

Loving & Learning workshops teach parents how to develop a child’s desire to want to read or write. We work with organizations to schedule workshops at a time convenient for families. Specifically designed to support parents, these workshops discuss how to develop early literacy skills in the home. Each family receives free gifts to take home.
