UHCL stocks reading library for Habitat family

HOUSTON — The University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Habitat for Reading Project created another library of children’s books in the newest Habitat for Humanity home in Pasadena. Habitat for Reading is a UHCL initiative to create home libraries for the children of families receiving Habitat for Humanity houses. The initiative was begun in 2016 by Sheila Baker, College of Education assistant professor of Literacy, Language and Library Science. Along with providing a collection of books, which are specifically targeted to the family’s individual children’s interests, UHCL students develop books with supporting activities and videos of students modeling read-aloud strategies that promote parent and child reading time. Pictured from left are Julissa and Fabian Bernal with children Fabian Jr., Camila and Karina. For more information about the program or to make a donation contact Baker at or Richard Zalesak in the University Advancement Office at
