UWM Creates Free App to Help Families and Libraries encourage Children to Read
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Waukesha County public libraries collaborated on a free app for parents to track books read to their children. The app supports the popular “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program offered by libraries nationwide.
The goal is to encourage parents and grandparents to read to children, fostering literacy later on. (See http://www.wcfls.org/early-literacy for more information.)
