How United Through Reading works:
United Through Reading (UTR) sets up a reading room on a deployed Army base; a Soldier chooses a book from an on-site library and reads it on camera in the privacy of their own little recording room. UTR handles the rest. They package and ship the video and book to the family at home.
United Through Reading is a non-profit organization that offers military parents the opportunity to be video-recorded reading storybooks to their children from nearly 200 recording locations worldwide. Our program creates an emotional connection between parents and their child, encourages literacy, eases homecomings and gives families the tools to reintegrate into a daily routine. Since inception, over two million military parents, spouses and children have benefited from United Through Reading’s programs and services.
