It is a well-known fact that it is important to read. But do you know the actual benefits of reading, especially for children? When children have a home library, as few as 20 books of their own at home, they achieve three more years of schooling than children who don’t have any books at home. Additionally, children learn 4,000 to 12,000 words per year through reading. Thus, the simple fact of owning books can make a significant impact on children and their development.
At Corey Hinson & Associates, we believe in the power of reading and want to support organizations that give people the opportunity to read more, especially kids. Promising Pages is an organization that envisions a world where all children have home libraries of self-selected books, can see themselves reflected in the books they read, and have made reading a joyful habit for a lifetime. The mission of Promising Pages is to collect new and donated books and share them with children living in the Charlotte Area Book Desert: those with few, if any, books at home. They work to create a culture of book sharing and ownership. This initiative positively impacts our community and fosters an environment where kids can read to learn and grow.
As we support this worthy cause, we would love for you to join our efforts. When you send a family member or friend into any Corey Hinson & Associates location for a free insurance consultation, we’ll make a $10 donation in your name to Promising Pages. Join us in the reading revolution!
