I just read some statistics.
Seems children in "middle-income neighborhoods [have] multiple opportunities to observe, use, and purchase books (estimated at about 13 titles per individual child)...."
Thirteen?!?! Kids in middle-income families only have thirteen books apiece?!?!
I find this appalling.
But if you think that's bad....
How about for low-income children?
Would you believe 1 book per 300 kids?
per 300 kids.
I read about this in the new issue of Costco's magazine. In the same article I read about Seussville. This site is connected to First Book and from either site, if you send an ecard, that's one more book they'll give to some poor kid.
So give books to kids.
And if you don't have anyone else to send a Seussian ecard to, send one to me. My address is on your left.
