"My Heartfelt Passion: Saving Our Nation One Child at a Time"
Author Jim Davidson Advocates for Literacy One Book at a Time
By: Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Co, LLC
A study by the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy shows that 32 million adults in the U.S. cannot read. One reason, is that 61 percent of low-income families have no books at home for preschoolers to read, and these early years are a crucial time for reading development. Davidson has proposed a nationwide plan to help solve the literacy problem.
Dr. C. Dennis Schick, a former journalism professor at four major universities before he became executive director of the Arkansas Press Association, has chimed in with his views on Davidson's program.
Schick stated, "There is hope and it can be found in a new book titled 'My Heartfelt Passion: Saving our Nation one Child at a Time' that has been written by Jim Davidson, a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist. Back in 2005, Jim founded a unique literacy project called 'A Bookcase for Every Child' in his home town of Conway, Arkansas. The project has now spread to five other states and collectively they have given over 2,000 personalized bookcases and a starter set of books to pre-school children being reared in low-income families."
Davidson believes that teaching people to read and write for success in life is one of the world's greatest needs.
According to Schick, "The war against illiteracy is one we definitely can win."
