Anyone who knows me knows how passionate I am about kids reading lots and lots of books – and writing lots and lots of poems and stories. It’s one of the very best things that any kid can do for their brains…grown-ups too! And for kids in poor countries, with little access to books or education, it’s often what will make or break their entire lives. So that’s why I talk about how to create Literate, Literary Kids in the Digital Age in schools wherever I visit (see my website at http://www.sarah-brennan.com on the School Visits page).
And it’s also why I’m so very proud to be a Writer Ambassador for RoomtoRead, perhaps the most effective charity in the world today working in developing countries to bring children access to books and to education.
Take a look at the posts below for news about this fantastic charity and their work around the world…but first, make sure you visit their website at http://www.roomtoread.org to see how you can help.
