Research shows that a smaller percentage of children in poverty were read to, told stories, or sung to daily by a family member than children at or above the poverty level. Reading aloud to children is vital because it helps them acquire the information and skills they need in life. Some of those skills are knowledge of printed letters and words; the relationship between sound and print; the meaning of words; how books work; and an understanding of a variety of writing styles. Our 4th graders are currently in the bottom 5% of all 4th graders in the state in their ability to read and comprehend text. Part of this is due to the lack of reading at home. Our students spend their time exposed to outside influences due to the lack of parental support. I would love to given them an alternative to these choices through literature.
