It’s more than just passing down a love of reading...
It’s about giving a small child a strong start at a big life!
Literacy is a fundamental skill and one of the strongest predictor’s of a child’s future success in life! Yet, astonishingly, 30% of Grade 3 students in Canada lack basic literacy skills.
When you crunch the numbers, 65% of Ontario children lack confidence in their reading abilities. These young minds are capable of achieving great things, but they need our help. Without additional intervention, students who have difficulty reading in Grade 1 will almost never catch up to meet reading standards by the end of primary school.
The ability to read is a game changer! Literacy builds confidence and expands life opportunities!
Life should be a wild adventure, and reading not only transports us to magical and exciting places, it lets us dream, design and accomplish our own wildest dreams.
