A recent study concluded that the average child these days has 13 books to call their own. Tragic. (I think I had at least 50, if not tons more. Plus the library at which the librarians knew me by name.)
Go to www.firstbook.org to read more about the study, and if you send the Cat in the Hat a 50th birthday card from the site, a book will be given to a child in need. It literally only takes a minute, so check it out. Or you can get all arty and color for a bit. Skip the surveys today and help a kid learn to read, and hopefully LOVE to read instead.
Repost this so we can get the word around.
Seriously. I went to the site and it's sponsored by Random House. Go give a kid a book!
