ABSTRACT
Born to Read, a literacy program for babies and toddlers up to age three was introduced at Delta State University during the fall and spring semesters of the 2004-2005 school year. The program promotes literacy and the love of language by introducing books to children from the time they are born. It spotlights for parents and caregivers the value and necessity of singing, speaking, and reading to babies and toddlers. The pleasure of sharing books is a gift that will enhance every child's learning experience. Students from the College of Education at DSU provided the programs each week.
