·  96 % say they feel their child will be more prepared for school

·  53 % read to their child more than 1 time/day, a 27 % increase

What Parents are Saying:

· “I know for me, I didn't like to read. She seems to enjoy it, and I'm hoping it sticks with her. Reading was my worst subject growing up, so I'm trying to make sure it's not hers too!”

As one parent said: "My son never let me read to him. He wanted nothing to do with books until he started getting his books in the mail from Imagination Library. Now every month when he sees his new book in the mailbox he can't wait to get it inside & look at it. He loves for me to read to him now & he's learning letters and words from reading! We love Imagination Library!"
