Literacy is critical to student outcomes. Only 37% of high school students score high enough on achievement tests to handle college-level material—but 70% attempt college-level work. Help us close that gap with our new initiative. Follow the link below to learn more.

In case you missed it, our GiveGab campaign is now live! With this project, we will be developing an app that allows parents to access literacy tools from their smart phone or tablet anywhere in the world.

While our campaign doesn't officially launch until tomorrow, we would love to hit 10% of our goal by the end of the day. Can you help us reach that mark? Every little bit helps!

We've got lots of cool stuff on the (virtual) drawing board for the Reading Tub! This is ALMOST as much fun as getting lost in a great book.

Introduction
In 2001, I traded my 20-year career in public service to be a Stay-at-Home Mom. It re-opened a door I had long forgotten: a passion for reading and literacy.

I created the The Reading Tub when my daughter was 18 months old. Now she's 11! You'll find me writing about and sharing literacy ideas 
Here are the circles where I spend my time
