"Reading and writing are skills that play a pivotal role in formatting and shaping our everyday experiences. These skills affect everything we do and accomplish in life. Studies have shown that children with a strong literacy foundation become lifelong learners, perform better in schools, develop a strong sense of self and well-being and are more likely to succeed. Researchers are finding that the groundwork for literacy begins as early as day one–from birth."
"It truly was a joy and a treat for the children. Their eyes lit up in awe and excitement to get to have such an up close and personal experience with the heroes of our community, and not to mention the awesome Fire Truck. "
