It sounds almost too simple to be true, but by reading regularly with your children during their preschool years, you are giving them the biggest boost toward a successful education they will ever get. Books from Birth of Middle Tennessee will help you read with your child.
There are many reasons parents do not read to their child, but we can eliminate one of them. Every child will have books of their very own, at no cost to you, thanks to Governor Bredesen and the State of Tennessee, Books from Birth of Middle TN, other generous sponsors and Dolly Parton.
Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in your child's name directly to your home. He/she can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Books from Birth's Library until he/she turns five years old as long as you remain a resident of Davidson County. Should the child move outside Davidson County, he/she automatically exits the program.
