More than 800 preschool children received books each month from both Cherokee County (S.C.) First Steps and Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, a project that continued until each child reached age 5.
As executive director at the time, Nikol Withrow said, "Recent figures show 35 percent of children arrive at kindergarten unprepared to learn. This has prompted Cherokee County First Steps to provide the literacy program in an effort to increase children's vocabulary before they enter school.
"It's a great way to help children develop their vocabularies and learn how to become good readers at an early age," Nikol Withrow stated.
As a result, The House of Representatives approved legislation to renew the First Steps to School Readiness Law until July 1, 2013.
