We challenge St. Louisans to read to your children!


Studies show that children who are regularly read to have a much higher vocabulary than those who aren’t.

Give your children a head start on success in school and life … read with them.

Join Turn the Page STL in our campaign to get more parents and children reading.

Because … A St. Louis that Reads Together Succeeds Together

How you can get involved:

  • Read to your young children every day. If your children are older, read together!
  • Watch for announcements of Turn the Page STL’s monthly events

Our Sept. 28 kickoff at 10:00 a.m. at the Missouri History Museum:






Watch our PSA with Mayor Lyda Krewson and County Executive Steve Stenger

Turn the Page STL, a committee of the St. Louis Regional Early Childhood Council, is St. Louis’ first-ever, city-county wide literacy initiative with the purpose to ensure all children in our region are reading and or above grade level by the end of third grade.  Our work is aligned and measured, based on the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, which includes school readiness, school attendance, summer learning and grade-level reading.
