Studies show that children exposed to books at a young age are more likely to do better both academically and behaviorally. Goodwill Manasota invites area families to enjoy monthly installments on Saturday mornings at 11AM in one of the four Goodwill Manasota Bookstores in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Goodwill Ambassadors will read to groups of children for an hour, while parents are free to browse the store or listen with their child. When story time ends, each child will receive a free book. First launched in 2014, the Good Readers Program works to engage young minds and foster a lifelong love of reading in children. understanding, and narrative comprehension. The goal of the Good Readers program is to provide additional support and assistance for low-income children, and the gift of books of their own.
