Celebrate Literacy Day – Reading is important because…
International Literacy Day was started 1965. Reading is important for people globally. It improves concentration, improves discipline and memory, builds self-esteem, and improves your vocabulary!
Internationally, some 776 million adults lack minimum literacy skills; one in five adults is still not literate and two-thirds of them are women; 75 million children are out-of-school and many more attend irregularly or drop out. Being a writer I’m naturally concerned that literacy for children and adults is always moving forward. Raise awareness today by finishing the sentence and using the hashtags to share it on social media. Also take some time today to read a book or share a good book with a child. Don’t forget to leave a review to let others know about a book you enjoyed!
This year’s theme is finishing this sentence, Reading is important because…
