Reston Historic Trust & Museum is proud
to announce an exciting collaboration
as we publish Reston's first-ever
children's board book!
Reston Reads is a project (born during the pandemic) which is designed to help parents provide their children with a head start to childhood literacy. Literacy starts as soon as a baby is born! Research suggests that future achievement and success in school is highly linked to being able to read as a child. Starting in June 2021, this bilingual (English/Spanish) board book will be provided free to Reston residents with newborns, with initial distribution at Reston Hospital Center. The book will include a supporting pamphlet and bookmark that introduces parents to the importance of reading.
Pre-Order Your Copy Now!
The very first copy of Reston Baby was delivered to a lovely family on June 3, 2021 at Reston Hospital Center! A copy will be given to each newborn born at RHC as part of their Newborn Parents Packet starting June 2021.
Our favorite book about our favorite town is in the news! Thank you to Reston Today for featuring our efforts with this video.
