How literacy impacts wealth and health
Many moons ago my mum taught me to read. I was very young.
I love reading it has been a constant source of education and entertainment throughout my life.
I consider this to be one of the most important gifts she ever gave me.
We were not wealthy and we had few books but she took me to the library every single week and I read and read and I read.
Eventually I took an A level in Literature and went off to do a degree at the University of Essex in American literature which was just a delight. I now write blogs and books as my full time job. A love of reading really can help you career and otherwise.
My children also love to read and know that helps them so much with their school work and life.
Literacy has such a huge impact on both our lives and our livelihood.
