Why Literacy Matters to Us

- 1 in 4 children in America grow up without learning how to read (, 2015 )

-Reading to children early on can help boost literacy rates longterm (Lake, 2016).

- Nearly 85% of juveniles who face trial in the juvenile court system are functionally illiterate (, 2015).

-Teenage girls who have lower literacy rates are about 4X's more likely to become a teenage mother (Lake, 2016).
