The group’s goal is to collect 450 “gently used” picture books to be able to send one home with every child attending the Thelma B. Johnson Early Learning Center. The intent is to start or add to the child’s home library and to encourage parents to read with their children. Research has proven that the more a child is read to, the more he/she learns words that better prepare that child for kindergarten success.
