According to national literacy statistics, two-thirds of children who do not read proficiently by 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare. This is a shocking statistic! We at As the Stars of the Sky Foundation strongly promote literacy. As parents, we have a tremendous obligation to our children – to not only raise them with good Christian principles, but to also ensure that they read proficiently so that they can be successful in life. Make a commitment today to spend time reading and praying with your children.
