Prime Time Family Reading Time is a family-based reading program held for adults and their lower-elementary aged children. The program features animated storytelling and open-ended questioning, thus encouraging participants to engage in meaningful conversations, develop higher-level thinking skills, and ultimately, move from basic, functional reading to thoughtful literacy.

The MHC partners with the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, through a subgrant from Shell Oil, to present Prime Time Family Reading at various sites across Mississippi.
