On Books, #33

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, 12% of Kansas children ages 1 to 5 were read to less than 3 days a week by family members in 2007. That’s 22,000 Kansas children who are likely to have diminished vocabularies, reduced ability to communicate, and inadequate preparation for the crucial early years of schooling.

Nationwide 3,132,000 children were read to less than 3 days a week, and will likely suffer similar disabilities.
