Books for all ages
Through READY! for Kindergarten, Team Read, Our Babies Canâ€™t Wait and Books for Babies (supported by MSA) the Childrenâ€™s Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia is implementing programs that begin at birth to make certain that children learn to read, and read well.
There are hundreds of excellent books for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children. Here are a few of our favorites:
A partnership with Goodwill Industries of the Columbia allows us to support new educators by providing First Teacher Libraries. We distribute thousands of books annually and Columbia Center Rotary book baskets can be found in hundreds of waiting rooms and offices throughout the area. Our goal is to help children develop a love of reading, but in order to achieve that goal we need to make literacy a community priority.
