Filled with beautiful photographs of children, this books is part of the Read and Rise Initiative, which helps prepare children for a lifetime of success by providing a parents guide to fostering reading skills in their kids. Through the use of their imagination and a book, these children can become anything they want to be; a pilot, doctor, chef, teacher, astronaut, firefighter, baseball player, dancer. Whether its exploring, soaring, healing, catching, “just open a book to – Read and Rise.” We read lots of books and I appreciate books that encourage reading!
