Grass Valley Elementary School-MakerSpace

World Book Day

In America, 1 in 4 children are illiterate. Two-thirds of children who are unable to read at their grade level by the age 10 end up in jail or on welfare as an adult and have a 78 percent chance of never catching up ( And according to UNICEF, “nearly a billion people will enter the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names and two thirds of them are women.” For these reasons alone, we at Rimini Street believe it is crucial to develop a love for books starting at an early age. That is why we celebrated World Book Day with the students of Grass Valley Elementary School by donating 300 books and spending an afternoon reading to the wonderful students of GVE!
