Weekend Wonders: Promote Children's Literacy


Library Lovers' Month is coming to a close and today is Tell a Fairy Tale Day, so what better way to spend a little time today than by promoting literacy for children.  The Literacy Site makes it so easy -- all you have to do is click and this site, along with its partner, First Book, will provided children from low-income families with books to take home and keep.  Did you know that here in the United States, the only variable that directly correlates with reading scores is the number of books in the home?  Since low-income families are much less likely to own or have access to books, this program helps increase the probability that these children will learn to read.  Head on over there to click now, and place some books in the hands of these children now!
