HOW THE PROJECT/PROGRAM FOSTERS A LOVE OF READING IN CHILDREN:
Reading is an important skill that needs to be developed in children. Not
only is it necessary for survival in
the world of schools, but in adult
life as well. The more children read, the better they become at reading.
more young children read stories and are read to, the greater their
interest in mastering reading. Reading can open up
new worlds and enrich
children lives. Does reading really matter? YES
not seem that important if you've acquired the skill, but if you don't have it your life is likely to be poorer in every sense.
