Welcome to Raising A Reader MA’s online resource center!


We hope that these tools, strategies, and suggestions help each of your programs to establish a strong connection to families.  Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or resources you’d like to share.


A note on terminology- there are a few “catch-all” terms  frequently throughout this collection of resources that may not apply to every program or partner we served.   Below, we’ve tried to clarify these words to help you understand their relevance to RAR MA programming at YOUR site.  Please ask if you have any questions!

“children”– students, families

“space”– classroom, conference room, playgroup site

“implementers”– someone rotating the Red Bag: could be a teacher, a playgroup leader, or another staff member that will work with families to ensure that families are able to access Raising A Reader books, bags, and resources
