Read Aloud Delaware volunteer readers are welcomed by a room full of excited children whenever they enter a preschool classroom. With hands raised as high as they will reach, children exclaim, "Pick me, pick me!"

Our volunteers experience this joy daily at more than 100 reading sites across Delaware. Each reading encounter introduces children ages 1 to 5 years old to the world of literacy and to spark the desire to become lifelong readers.

Our mission is to ensure that each preschool child in Delaware is regularly read to one-on-one.

All children in Delaware need to be ready to learn to read when they enter kindergarten. With your help, we can make that happen.


Reading one-on-one to preschool children is a simple strategy with proven results. More reading in preschool means more success in life.

Can you give an hour or two each week to make a positive impact on a child?


You can give the gift of literacy to Delaware's youngest and most vulnerable children. 

You change a child's future. 

Can we count on your support?
