National Children's Literacy Website

"More than any other single skill, the ability to read - and read well - allows a child to succeed in school,  learn about the world, function in society, and someday have decent job options. Enhancing children's literacy is at the heart of the Soho Center's NATIONAL CHILDREN'S LITERACY INFORMATION project - a national children's literacy initiative."
