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.

Goodnight Moon

In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room—to the picture of the three little bears sitting in chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one—he says goodnight.


This fun interactive Literacy Kit gives children the opportunity to play along with the story as they locate and place the various items in the bed.
