News You Can Use

Here’s some news that was sent to me courtesy of a weekly WashingtonPost email subscription.

The Partnership for Reading is offering a free 40-page booklet to help children become better readers. The Partnership for Reading is a collaborative effort of the National Institute for Literacy, the US Department of Education, and the National Institute for Child Health and Development. As written in the eMail:

“The booklet will give you activities that you can do with your children, ages five to ten years, to help them read better.”

Each family can receive one free copy. To order multiple copies, call 1-800-228-8813 or visit this Web site:
