Read to Baby Bundle
Kids First Early Literacy Network is a non-profit network of Huron Perth services, agencies and organizations that support families with children prenatal to 6 years of age. Our Early Literacy Network is striving to improve literacy levels of families in Huron and Perth through a program we call “Read to Baby Bundle”.
The program gives families of newborn children a book bag which contains: 1 sturdy children’s board book, an engaging children’s songs and nursery rhymes booklet, a Donor Acknowledgement flyer and list of community literacy resources.
