"Literacy - the ability to read, write, and understand - is the birthright of every child in the world. Young people need to know how to analyze, interpret, and understand information. *~* Learn to read nonfiction for information. Learn to read fiction for imagination. *~* Every child should have access to books. *~* Young people also need teachers who provide instruction to interpret the information the encounter. Every child should have Literacy Confidence... Literacy Confidence = the ability to read, write, and speak about what they know, what they feel, and who they are. Read Every Day. Lead a Better Life."
~poster from Scholastic, 2010
I've hung this on the book return cart for maximum read-age potential!
I hope that left you inspired like it did me. Read to your child, let them read to you.
