How to get free books for your child

From News 5 Cleveland:

CLEVELAND — Every summer, the Scripps Howard Foundation and our News 5 family come together to donate money and buy books for children in need here in Cleveland.

This year, we’re also asking our viewers to join us in supporting our “Give A Child A Book” campaign.

The foundation will match every dollar donated, up to $5,000.

The words we learn as children shape so much of the rest of our lives.

“We know talking to your child from the moment they’re born is good for their brain,” said Bob Paponetti, president and CEO of The Literacy Cooperative.

The Literacy Cooperative is a nonprofit in Northeast Ohio that connects organizations and people to improve literacy right where we live. Full disclosure, Homa Bash is a board member of the organization.
