About Read Conmigo

Read Conmigo was created out of the discovery that many Latino parents, grandparents and caregivers who do not read fluently yet in English are hesitant to read to their children at home in Spanish. Studies have shown that families play a vital role in childhood literacy. According to the National Education Association, 26% of children who were read to three or four times in the last week by a family member recognized all letters of the alphabet. This is compared to 14% of children who were read to less frequently.

Read Conmigo books feature creative, fresh and engaging stories in both English and Spanish, so that Latino parents and children can read aloud together. Parents of children, from babies to 5th graders can subscribe to receive free books available online, in print and on mobile devices. Read Conmigo has distributed over 1 million books to families, schools and libraries nationwide. The program is also utilized by more than 11,000 educators. The campaign promotes the distinct educational, social, and financial benefits of bilingualism and provides parents with free tools and resources to help them create a lifelong love of reading.
