Why Reading Makes a Difference
Did you know, that according to the U.S. Department of Education, children who have not developed some basic literacy skills by the time they enter school are three to four times more likely to drop out in later years? Some states even estimate the number of prison beds needed in the future by looking at current third and fourth grade reading scores.
For strong readers, opportunity abounds. Let’s make our children’s future as bright as their smiles. Encourage reading! Help each child understand and embrace the transformative power of books.
” Few children learn to love books by themselves. Someone
has to lure them into the wonderful world of the written word;
someone has to show them the way.”
A Father Reads to His Children
Do you have thirty minutes to an hour once a week to share the joy of reading?
This year more than 175 volunteers did just that. 5,000 children in 28 Brevard County Title 1 elementary schools welcomed a Rolling Reader into their classroom.
Sign up for a Training/Orientation Session and become a Rolling Reader.
Make the time and make a difference…one book at a time.
