Born to Read

May 17, 2018 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by Holly Bounds Jackson and Tabitha Safdi

Besides their bundle of joy, new moms leave the hospital with stacks of information meant to help get the baby on the right track.  A Lowcountry group of volunteers is using that post-partum window to educate mothers about the advantages of early reading.

At the mother’s hospital bedside, volunteers with Born To Read explain the benefits and also gift the baby with a new book and a bag full of goodies. The goal is to surround children with books and words from day one.
