Pascagoula children under 5 will get a leg up on reading

"All children born in Pascagoula, MS during 2010 and 2011 will have the chance to be well-read — or well-read-to — by the time they begin kindergarten under a partnership announced Wednesday.

The Pascagoula Excel By 5 Coalition will work with the nonprofit Dollywood Foundation to make sure children born during those years who live in the city — ZIP codes 39567 and 39581 — are enrolled for participation in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. Under the program, the children will receive a new, age-appropriate book for their parents to read to them each month until they reach age 5."
