Santa Ana Zoo pushes childhood reading

SANTA ANA, Calif. Staff from the Children and Families Commission read books to children and handed out free copies Friday.

The A to Zoo event headlines a month-long series of child literacy-themed events as part of the commission's Ready Early, Read Aloud campaign.

The program tries to reach children and parents throughout Orange County by supplying books, reading tips and story time activities to help close the gap on childhood illiteracy.
