How to inspire every child to be a lifelong reader | Alvin Irby
"The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children." ~Becoming a Nation of Readers
"According to the US Department of Education, more than 85 percent of Black fourth-grade boys aren't proficient in reading. What kind of reading experiences should we be creating to ensure that all children read well?" ~TED
“In a talk that will make you rethink how we teach, educator and author Alvin Irby explains the reading challenges that many Black children face and tells us what culturally competent educators do to help all children identify as readers."
We Are LIT believes the passion for reading is ignited when a child can see themselves through characters of a fun, vibrant story! We curate multicultural books for young readers. Themes in our Children’s LIT collection include among others... community, confidence, courage, education, family, friendship, and growing up!
