UNDATED, Miss. (WCBI)-A $20,000 dollar grant from Toyota will help as many as a thousand children in Lee and Union counties get an early start on reading. The grant will help Reach Out and Read work with pediatricians and others to provide age-appropriate books to families and their children from six months old to age 5. The medical professionals also will work with the families on the importance of reading at home so the children are prepared when they start school.
