It is such a pleasure to hear the children in our Child Development Center (CDC) daycare and preschool requesting "just one more, please!" referring to their new books. This past Friday the children were busy reading and listening to their brand new Usborne books! Abbey Cook, a board member, hosted a fundraiser that provided Crittenton Centers with over $1,000 worth of books for the children. These books are exciting, engaging, educational, and purposefully chosen for the children. The stories and illustrations keep all of our children, ages 6 weeks to 6 years, passionate about reading. The CDC promotes a love of books and reading from an early age that will hopefully last for many years.
Crittenton Centers' vision of educating and strengthening children and families to build safe, vibrant communities where children thrive and families succeed is in full swing in our CDC. Each week, thanks to donations and the Success by Six program offered through the United Way, we are able to provide each child a brand new book to take home. So many of our families are grateful for the opportunity to build their own home library. Your donations truly put a smile on their faces and a love a reading in their hearts!
