OUR PROGRAMS Red Book Bags promote parent-child bonding and increase read-aloud time at home by providing families of preschool and kindergarten children with more than 100 different classics and new titles during the year. Each week, children take home a different red bag filled with four books to borrow and return them for a new bag the following week. Bolsitas Rojas/ Little Red Bags fill a need in our most underserved communities. Our parent-child reading clubs bring together families whose children are not enrolled in preschool for weekly sessions in our local libraries. RAR staff model positive attitudes toward books and encourage parent engagement and positive literacy behaviors at home, which include the rotation of our red book bags. 1-2-3 Let’s Read provides children with a free storybook each month, along with bookrelated activities for parents and teachers. The books and activities create a bridge between home and school to foster parents’ participation in supporting their child’s learning both in the classroom and at home.
