How much do you know about the importance of reading? Do you know what fraction of children never learn to read? Do you have any idea what percent of families don’t have books at home for their kids? Do you know how many children who aren’t proficient readers in the 4th grade will eventually end up in jail or on welfare?

The answers to these questions and more appear in the video below. And as frightening as some of the answers are, there’s also a ray of hope in this situation. Teaching kids to read will make our world a better place.

In the video below, a little girl struggles to put a puzzle together. At first, she just can’t seem to get it.

Having someone else put the puzzle together for her would be easier, wouldn’t it? Yes, yes, it would. But, as the PSA you’re about to see demonstrates, the answer key is right before you, between book covers. She didn’t need anybody else. She just needed time and dedication to figure it out.
