United Way Early Readers Program

A few years ago we enrolled Daulton in the Early Readers Program through the United Way.  It is a great program that sends books to your child every quarter.  Daulton is excited to get mail and to see what new books he has received.  We usually end up reading all the books he has received that same night.

The child receives books until the age of 6 and you can see the list of books here.  You can choose to pay $20 a year for your child to be in the program or you can request for a scholarship and receive the books for free.

This has been a great program for us and well worth the $20 each year.  And somehow we ended up receiving two packets every quarter, so Daulton gets to decide where the extra books go.  Sometimes he decides to give them to a friend or he takes them to his mommy's house where he can read them there.

Reading together has been a great way for us to spend time together and for Daulton to improve his reading skills.  He had enough confidence in his reading skills to take several books to school and read them to his class.

This program serves children in Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Marion and Morgan counties.
