Did you know it was Read Across America Day on March the 2nd? It was also the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, or Dr Seuss – beloved of so many for his crazy characters and fun wordplay. President Obama himself signed an official Proclamation and spoke eloquently about the power and magic of reading.
Literacy, the ability to read and understand words, is a great gift – it’s why our Mum teaches literacy (see our post here). Can you imagine not being able to read books? Blogs? Twitter? A rental agreement? You are on the back foot from the get go – right? The ability to read, discover and enjoy stories should be within the reach of everyone so they can enjoy books they will love like Rescued.
Why this book is awesome:-
- Each story writer chooses the rescue the months’ profits go to and for March, Ryker’s family have Great Plains Rescue very close to their hearts. Great Plains work flat out to keep cats and kittens safe, healthy and rehomable. They go above and beyond for the animals.
- Head over to get your copy of Rescued from Ryker’s blog and you get a genuinely unique special extra treat that will really make the book the perfect gift for you or a friend. (image used with permission of Lisa L Richman).
Being able to read is a blessing, sit quietly somewhere and take a breath – find stillness with your book, and a cat nearby.
Happy Read Across America Day – and Every Day.
