Literacy. Is it possible to take this precious gift for granted? Well, meet Joseph. He is author J. Hale Turner’s Spokeskid For Literacy. Although he’s fairly young, he still wants everyone to take literacy seriously and be able to read. In addition, his creator, Ms. Turner, is also an advocate for literacy. Yes, Reading Is Fundamental. While it’s true that none of us all have the same abilities, don’t you agree that if we are to improve in any area that we must start somewhere? As an encouraging article about How Bible Education Promotes Literacy points out, many people have learned to read and write simply by incorporating the two into their Bible education program.
Knowing how to read can open our minds to a world chock-full of wholesome discovery! Even those who do not have their senses of vision and hearing can learn to read. Isn’t that amazing and wonderful! Certainly then, the ability to read is a gift from God which really does make reading fundamental.
HAPPY READING! 🙂
