International Literacy Day: Invent the Future!

international-literacy-day

The significance of literacy cannot be overstated.  It is the foundation for progress, opportunity, and success.  Reading Kingdom, Lingo, and the entire Reading Kingdom team are delighted to take part in the celebration of International Literacy Day.  Here’s more about International Literacy Day from the International Reading Association’s website

“International Literacy Day, observed annually on September 8, focuses attention on worldwide literacy needs. (To increase participation from schools, libraries, organizations, and corporations, IRA will observe International Literacy Day on Monday, September 9, 2013.)

More than 774 million of the world’s adults (nearly two-thirds of whom are women) do not know how to read or write, and roughly 123 million children lack those same skills, and are often denied any access to education.  This year, the International Reading Association has adopted the theme “Invent Your Future.” Our goal? To help shine a light on the crucial literacy skills that prime students for success in school, work, and life.”
