READING IS FUNDAMENTAL IN CHICAGO's Photo

THE STORY:

Regular access to books has a direct impact on children's success, irrespective of parents’ own education, occupation and social class. Researchers said that children coming from a “bookish home” remained in education for three years longer than young people born into families with empty bookshelves. "You get a lot of 'bang for your book'," said Dr Evans. "It's quite a good return on investment in a time of scarce resources." The report – published in the journal Research in Social Stratification and Mobility – also revealed that having as few as 20 books in the home still had an impact. Will you please make an impact on Chicago's children who have NO BOOKS IN THEIR HOMES?
