April Power Lunch: What’s the Word on Early Literacy?

April 12, 2018

11:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Junior League Lodge (1547 Riverside Drive, 30501)

Study after study has shown the tremendously positive impact reading to children can have on their academic success when beginning to read to them as early as the day they are born. Join us to learn more about what the research says and how you can help promote early literacy in your family and our community.
