The evidence-based Little by Little School Readiness Program engages low-income families
and fosters early literacy skills to improve school success for children.
Almost 60% of children in the U.S. start kindergarten unprepared in critical
language and reading skills.
One child in four grows up not learning how to read.
$2 billion is spent on students repeating a grade because of problems related to reading.
By age three, there is a
30-million-word gap between children from the wealthiest and poorest families.
65% of fourth graders in U.S. public schools are reading
below the proficient level.
