WIC mom reading for Love Logo

New Jersey WIC Services has implemented WIC Moms Reading for Love, a new reading program devoted to motivating parents and caregivers to read to their young children.

WIC Moms Reading for Love is in support of the Governor's goal to have every New Jersey child reading at or above grade level by the end of 3rd grade.

WIC Moms Reading for Love seeks parents, caregivers and community members to volunteer to read to WIC children while visiting the local WIC clinics. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to read to their infants and children every day.

The Garden State Discovery Museum has provided New Jersey WIC with innovative WIC Moms Reading for Love training opportunities and materials. Interested New Jersey WIC moms, caregivers and volunteers have been provided with training and guidance in reading techniques for use with small children.

Expanded children’s book displays and reading areas, as well as resources for additional WIC Moms Reading for Love training, are available at the local WIC clinics.

For additional information regarding WIC Moms Reading for Love, please contact your local WIC clinic.
