The Life of a Ladybug

live with intention. walk to the edge. listen hard. practice wellness. play with abandon. laugh. choose with no regret. continue to learn. appreciate your friends. do what you love. live as if this is all there is. -mary anne radmacher

Friday, January 06, 2006 The Literacy Site was founded to help promote literacy among children from low-income families nationwide. Partnering with First Book, the site makes books available to children around the country, giving many children their very first book. With the generous support of sponsors, each click provides 1% of a book. First Book has provided nearly 30 million new books to children in need in hundreds of communities nationwide. 61% of low-income families have no books for children in their homes. Over 80% of childcare centers serving low-income children lack age-appropriate books and other print materials. The children served by First Book are found in existing programs such as youth centers, housing projects, pediatric clinics, homeless shelters, migrant worker camps, daycare centers and other community-based initiatives serving children living at or below the poverty line. Please help! Clicking on each day will go a long way toward helping a poor child learn to read - for education and for the fun of it. Education is the best way to get a poor child on the road to success. Thanks!
