A Publisher Involved in Childhood Literacy Efforts
Did you know?
For each book you purchase on our online bookstore,
https://www.goread.com/store we match your purchase by providing a book to a child to promote literacy.
Shockingly, even in our prosperous society, we have an illiteracy crisis:
· 14% of Americans are considered illiterate.
· 36% of people worldwide can't read at an 8th grade level in their native language.
· 85% of people who commit criminal offenses in the United States are considered to be illiterate.
· Over 19% of all high school graduates in the United States cannot read.
· There is a direct link between literacy, crime, poverty, and divorce.
· And.. these statistics have not changed in the past 10 years!
Note: This publisher offers my books for sale. That's why I'm aware of the effort. I am not pushing sales of my books. (Although that would be nice.) Purchase of any book on the site will be matched by a giveaway of a free book to a child. 5426 books have been given away to date,
