Our Parent Prep course teaches parents what they need to know to better help their children improve their reading skills at home
These workshops invite parents and children ages 0-11 to come learn the skills needed to become a good reader. Each of the three one-hour workshops covers two skills and a take-home craft session that will aid in building the skills at home. One-time workshops geared toward the parents of children in R2L's Team Read program are also held each year. Most importantly, parents learn how to share in the joy of reading with their children. Workshops are run in conjunction with the Dallas Public Library’s Every Child Ready to Read program.
Sessions are free and participants receive free books each week
Sessions can be held in English or Spanish
