This is one of the most important ways to help children get ahead in school and in life.
Here are things he could do:
• Contact a local elementary school or child-care center and ask to be partnered with a child for reading. Spend at least half-an-hour once a week reading with the child. Visit the library with the child.
• Volunteer in the children’s section of your local public library. Read to children and help them select books.
• Collect children’s books and donate them to a homeless shelter or child-care center. Go there and read to the children.
• Call businesses and encourage them to donate books to needy children.
