Reading is one of the most important skills a child learns and has an impact on their entire life. Half of all illiterate adults live in poverty. 2/3 of all children who can’t read by the end of 4th grade will find it harder to live the American dream.
Studies show that just 10 minutes a day of reading can change the life of a child. Children who read 20 minutes a day score in the 90th percentile on standardized tests. However, 56% of students lack appropriate books at home and children are less likely to spend time reading as video games and social media capture more and more of their time.
