My husband stumbled across this great video by Book People Unite! (part of Reading is Fundamental) and thought it would be great for the bookish people who read The Book Wheel. Turns out he was right, so here it is! (For more information about them, click here for scroll to the bottom)
The following is directly from the Reading is Fundamental website
(creators of Book People Unite!)
Our vision is a literate America in which all children have access to books and discover the joys and value of reading.
To motivate young children to read by working with them, their parents, and community members to make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life. RIF’s highest priority is reaching underserved children from birth to age 8.
Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) is the largest children’s literacy nonprofit in the United States. We prepare and motivate children to read by delivering free books and literacy resources to those children and families who need them most. We inspire children to be lifelong readers through the power of choice. RIF provides new, free books for children to choose from and make their own. The seeds of inspiration in these books have motivated children to follow their dreams and achieve their potential. Yes, it seems incredible for a book to launch a life, but it happens every day as hungry, inquisitive young minds reach out and grab hold of the new people, places, and ideas that books bring them.
