In Monterey County, the Read to Me Project’s main goal is to help English language learners accomplish English reading literacy (Read to Me Project, 2017). Fourth, fifth, and sixthborrow age appropriate books from their teachers and read to their younger siblings, cousins, or neighbors. The young children identified by the school-aged child is named “little one” to be inclusive of all relationships the children may have to each other. For the purposes of the project, little ones could be as young as 8 months of age up to Pre-K. In the classroom, the school-aged children receive instruction on the importance of early literacy and the benefits of reading to their little ones. In the 2015-2016 school year, this program was launched in 70 classrooms and this current year, 2016-2017, it was implemented in 96 classrooms.
