Watching the Olympics over the past week, I can’t help but be inspired and amazed at the athletes tremendous dedication, drive, tenacity and sportsmanship. Congratulations to all of them!
For children, learning to read provides a true sense of accomplishment and self-worth. It’s an achievement to be proud of. After learning to read, a child’s world is opened up to new thoughts and ideas. This new frontier allows them to expand their knowledge in whatever area they desire through books, articles, educational activities for kids and other important information from sources including schools, libraries, and the internet. Dr. Marion Blank explains the correlation of learning to read with success in the quote below:
“For a child, being able to read a book is like winning an Olympic medal.” –Dr. Marion Blank, from her book The Reading Remedy.
