October 2013, Fountain Hills, AZ : FiEd-Financial Education Resource Company partners with Read Aloud 15 Minutes.
FiEd-Financial Education Resource Company is partnering with Read Aloud 15 Minutes. According to Read Aloud, nationally, 37% of children arrive at kindergarten without the skills necessary for lifetime learning and fewer than half (48%) of young children in the United States are read to daily. Further, research shows reading aloud is the single most important thing a parent can do to help a child prepare for reading and learning.
“We are excited to partner with Read Aloud to encourage 15 minutes of daily reading aloud from birth to eight and to help children develop the necessary literacy skills to become successful throughout their lives.”
The partnership further complements FiEd’s dedication to encouraging reading and increasing financial literacy. For more information about how FiEd is supporting Read Aloud, visit: fied.org
