About Dream Big Reads
Dream Big Reads are a collaborative strategy to bring financial education resources to communities and raise awareness on the need for early age financial literacy. Dream Big Read campaigns intend to make it just a little bit easier to help kids establish the right money habits and money attitudes while they are young. This will be initially achieved by conducting read alouds, sing-a-longs, having discussions, doing activities, and conducting contests with children between the ages of 4 and 10 starting with either the story book or read and color activity book titled Sammy’s Big Dream!
Dream Big Reads are one of the strategies Sammy Rabbit is executing to achieve his Mission 1 goal.
Our aim is to see Dream Big Reads replicated in every community across the U.S. and beyond. Join us!
