Read and Romp-Birmingham is an exciting, innovative family literacy event, reaching over 300 families each year. Started as a signature event by the national Reach Out and Read organization in Boston, Read and Romp-Birmingham is a unique collaboration of organizations that have early childhood literacy and family engagement as priorities.  While the event is centered on books, partnering organizations man child-focused stations provides families an opportunity to learn about activities to enhance the development and education of their young children. By associating fun-filled activities with reading, parents learn ways to engage with their child on the life-long journey of learning at an early age, increasing success in school.
