MISSION: LET’S READ 20 is dedicated to building a Community of readers by encouraging everyone to read to a child for at least 20 minutes each day from birth through elementary school.
Students can follow along as the story is read to them and can, in some instances, help create their own story. The website is highly engaging and a favorite of young readers.
