Striving for literacy, for every child

Henry’s imagination and curiosity, his love of science and adventure, often transported him far away from his everyday surroundings and through the pages of his books, where he journeyed to extraordinary places around the world, across the galaxy, in and out of time.  Recognizing that every child’s path to illumination is unique, HME embraces literacy as that story or experience that gets a child excited about learning and inspires them to continue to explore.
