DENVER (CBS4) – The state is teaming up with charities and businesses to make sure every child in Colorado learns to read, and at an early age.
On Wednesday “Colorado Reads” handed out books to students from Colfax Elementary.
Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia is heading up the project and says much of the focus is about starting early to guarantee future success.
Recently members of the Colorado Reads, the early literacy project, visited schools around the state handing out books thanks to donations from private partners like the Pierson Foundation.
