Laundry Time Turned Reading Time!



It’s always nice when we see our books being shared! Too Small to Fail, an early literacy initiative of the Clinton Foundation posted a video that shows children reading Red Socks (by Ellen Mayer, illustrated by Ying-Hwa Hu) and having fun together in an unusual place, a laundromat! This initiative turns an everyday task such as a trip to the Laundromat to help lay a strong foundation for lifelong learning that turns laundry time into reading time. This initiative will equip 5,000 laundromats in underserved communities with resources for families to engage in language-rich activities. Make sure to check out the video to learn more! Our fabulous illustrator, Ying-Hwa visited the laundromat and had a fun time reading Red Socks to children.
