My Mother's Voice, a California charity devoted to breaking generational poverty through early education, visits Title I schools with an impactful literacy program. They read award-winning books to students, providing each child with a monthly book and additional school supplies throughout the year.
In a recent endeavor, My Mother's Voice distributed Reading Buddy Bears to all kindergarten classes at their Title I schools. The enchanting tale of Corduroy served as the perfect read-aloud, setting the stage for kindergarteners to embark on their reading journeys. Following the story, each child had the opportunity to choose a reading leveled book and, as an added surprise, select a Reading Bear Buddy to accompany them on their literary adventures. The initiative emphasizes the profound impact of the bond between a child and their special Reading Bear Buddy, underscoring the transformative power of reading in fostering early literacy skills and a love for learning.
