This is such an important message. When I have kids, I’ll be reading Dickens to them before they are even born! It’s so sad that one in five children haven’t EVER been in a bookstore and this needs to change.
Children don’t be reading, and that’s their parent’s fault.
I’m always leery when I hear “a new study says,” but for what it’s worth a new study says that one in four students agree with the statement “My parents don’t care if I spend any time reading.”
According to Acculturated, one in six boys said they had never been given a book as a present and one in five said they had never been to a bookstore. That’s nuts!
