The Literacy Crisis And Kids In America
Studies have shown that success in school can be encouraged with one simple activity: reading. Yet in low-income neighborhoods, there is only 1 book for every 300 children. Nestle and Reading Is Fundamental, the nation’s largest children’s literacy nonprofit, are working to provide children with books to create a strong foundation for literacy through Nestle’s Share the Joy of Reading progrram. But they need your help, Reading Is Fundamental lost significant federal funding in the last budget cycle, so now more than ever, it is important to give back and support underserved children and their families.
