Are you a teacher at a pre-school or headstart program, administrator at a daycare center, or do teach reading skills to children between the ages of 0 – 5 years old? Then this is just for you.
Order bulk copies of 1 or 2 children’s books to supply various classrooms or send a copy home with each child to help increase literacy at home. Literacy is just as important at home, as it is at school.
Each year, The Bureau of Labor Statistics releases information about the average hours per day spent in selected leisure and sports activities by age. In reviewing the table for 2021, what I want you to consider is the ages between 15 – 54 reading for personal interest. Generally, this is the age range of most parents. Below is a photo from bls.gov. Click here for results.
After reviewing the information above by comparing the time spent reading, watching T.V., and socializing, do you know why literacy is very important? Help become a change agent by working with your local community advocates in increasing literacy amongst youth and families. You can start by buying in bulk and gifting these books to a school, children in your classroom, or a reading program. These books can also be gifted for the holidays and special occasions, such as birthday parties, school reading programs, Juneteenth, and much more.
