Sydney's Book Club presents the first annual 20-4-30 Story Time Challenge! Take the pledge today to promise to read to a child for 20 minutes a day for 30 days! The challenge begins April 1st and spans the entire month of April. The literacy rates in America are astounding and in 2012 80% of households in the United States admitted to not purchasing even ONE book in the entire year! The high school drop out rates continue to fall and there is a very strong link between illiteracy and the poverty decline in our youth. The best way to combat these issues are by growing strong readers at home. Help Sydney's Book Club fight for literacy by dedicating only 20 minutes of your time each day to providing story time to your child!
