Reading on grade level by the end of third grade is the most significant predictor of high school graduation. Children who have not learned to read cannot “read to learn.”
Our 2018 “Wild About Reading” event, presented by Atmos Energy and the United Way of Tarrant County, was a fun-filled day at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. From free books to celebrity readers, Tarrant County children had a blast celebrating a love of reading. Thank you to all our sponsors, event partners and volunteers for making this day possible.
Stay tuned for 2019 Wild About Reading information!
