THE STORY:

RX for Reading Detroit supports children's literacy, one book at a time. 

Reading is one of the most powerful tools we have for promoting healthy childhood development and long-lasting educational benefits.  In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends daily reading as a key part of a healthy childhood.

RX for Reading Detroit works to expand access to high-quality children's books and support families in reading with their children. 

Reading proficiently by the 4th grade is the single most important predictor of high school graduation and a successful career.  Research has proven that having access to books improves reading performance and children’s attitudes towards reading.  RX for Reading Detroit distributes new and gently used children's books to kids and community partners in Detroit.
