Tee Clare - Thanks for your words and energy. Your perspective on it all is from a different angle than mine and thus it highlights necessary facets of the jewel that when seen cannot be unseen, which speaks to me of how well our diverse team has always worked together. And, it is big work that we're all doing. This living one day at a time and feeling one moment at a time - it is the way we've learned and the way we'll teach. Reading-aloud is a tool for enlightenment, education, growth, compassion, understanding, shared experience and bridge-building. So simple and easy - so profound and real. My day is ending on such a wonderful note - thanks to your words and support. Stay strong and engaged. - PWE/RTMN

Thank you Diane for the referral to that article, which I had not yet seen myself. Buried down near the end of it was a link to a study from Scholastic, Inc., the 'Kids and Family Reading Report', which drills down even deeper into the current trends and statistics related to reading-aloud and it's current impact/prevalence within the United States:

Plus, Scholastic has coordinated research and issued reports related to reading/reading-aloud in Canada:

in Australia:

in India:

and in the UK:

More than enough data here for a few days worth of review.

And, all of it so supportive of the work we've undertaken.

How exciting!

Christina - Personal is good. Paying it forward is a choice. You've made/are making a good one. My wife taught me: 'All is Chosen'. We live by it every day. Enjoy your evening - I will do the same. - PWE/RTMN
