My First Books Migrant Seasonal Head Start (MSHS) Program targets children from birth to kindergarten who are enrolled at a Migrant Seasonal Head Start center. The program provides a bilingual book a month for three months for each participating child. MSHS parents also receive a monthly newsletter, “The Bookworm,” which suggests tips and strategies to support early literacy skills at home.
In addition to providing children with books, a goal of all Read to Me programs is to encourage contact between participating families and librarians to promote local library services.
Applications are due on April 15
