kidcentral tn included the above podcast in their recent newsletter. "Research shows young children who are read to three or more times a week are nearly twice as likely to show advanced literacy skills. The Governor's Book From Birth Foundation works to promote early childhood literacy for children in Tennessee between birth and 5-years-old. On the most recent episode of the Roots and Wings podcast, GBBF discusses why early childhood literacy is so important and what they're doing to promote childhood literacy across the state! "
