The Kansas Literacy Festival is a three-day-long community event that inspires a lifelong love of reading. The festival provides literacy enrichment through targeted programs, events, and activities that encourage early learning, family engagement, access to books, and advocacy and awareness.

80% of a child's brain is formed between birth and age 3.

More than 1 in 3 American children start kindergarten without the skills they need to learn to read.

Reading, rhyming, singing, and talking influences literacy and language development.
