Read to your children for fun

As a youngster, my parents were always reading. They read stories out loud to me and to each other. Out of of 20 'high income' countries, the US is 12th on literacy tests. Lobbyists bribe politicians to spend on everything except education. In some states, they spend more on prisons than on schools. You can help reverse this trend by reading to each other. Read to your children. Read to your spouse. Read with gusto. Read with excitement. Read to spark debate. After all, if your children don't see you enjoy reading, why should they want to do it?

Judging by the very light response, reading in the USA is hardly valued.  You know how I feel about literacy in the USA andyserrano.deviantart.com/art…

Yes, I knowyour opinion
 and I'm so glad you support reading.

I think that you should be set up for the United States Minister of Culture.

In my country there are ministers for each aspakt of life.
Though my country has a problem with a lot uneducated people, but in America it is more noticable because you are a 50 times bigger than us.

I think that every state in America should have a the main of culture!

In America, they have been dropping art and music from the school curriculums.  It is sad.

@06:00Great message! I'm very glad that my parents, who had so-so education, were able to read to me as a young child. Illiteracy leads to ignorance and ignorance leads to close mindedness. Being able to... for example, read the daily newspaper is the cherry on top of the cake for children. It builds reading skills very early on, and allows for social understanding in both personal affairs and world wide affairs! So many Americans are falling in academic success and it's hurting the country. It's very sad, truly. I learned about our non geocentric universe a long time ago in 4th grade! And not only are people ignorant of sciences, they are ignorant of the world around them. They think that all Arabs are bad, that Other countries are 'out to get them'.etc. I really do believe that we need to teach children this at younger ages, and expose them to these topics. And Reading skills is the first step to understanding.
