Literacy Kits

Make Reading Fun

United Way knows that by making reading fun we can encourage more kids to read and improve early grade reading and long term in school success rates.  That is why United Way has developed Literacy Kits.  United Way Literacy Kits are fun and interactive activities paired with favorite children’s books.  United Way volunteers help to design and build the kits which are then distributed to kids at local schools and early learning centers.

Is Your Mama a Llama?

Lloyd the Llama discovers what kind of animal his mama really is in this delightful guessing game picture book,
filled with whimsical riddles and endearing illustrations. Rhyming questions and answers will charm and amuse children.
A special thank you to Barb Boltz for choosing the theme, Kelli Coffman and BioMed Students for assembling the kits, and PNC and Kiwanis Club of Kent for grant sponsorships for the material and books.
