I frankly can't imagine many better ways for our tax dollars to be spent than getting kids reading. Talk about investing in our nation's future.
Speaking of which, please stop by pattersonpageturner.org this week to learn about some terrific, inspiring efforts that have been made in the past year to get people excited about books and reading.
I've given out some money to some folks who are out there getting people to realize what FUN books and reading can be. From a website where kids can have books read to them, to an outreach program in the Bronx, I think you'll find some pretty great stories, and maybe even some ideas for your own young reader.
Please keep those pages turning,
