NEW TEMPLATE

Half of Washington State children do not enter kindergarten ready to learn, and Latino children, in particular, face a long list of barriers to success in school. Through programs such as Humanities Washington's Motheread Family Literacy Program, disadvantaged families from across the state gain the opportunity to come together around the collective power of story, building literacy skills, pride in their culture, and a greater understanding of other cultures as a result.
