Did you know that 1 in 5 adults lack the basic reading skills beyond a fourth grade level? Or that almost 85% of all young people in the juvenile court system are illiterate?
Last September, the United Church of Christ introduced its first One Read of the inspirational book, Hot Dogs & Hamburgers: Unlocking Life's Potential by Inspiring Literacy at Any Age, by Rob Shindler, a Chicago attorney who has devoted himself to teaching adults how to read.
Shindler’s book is educational, entertaining, and motivating. It is still available for individuals and congregations who want to know more about the challenges facing adults who can’t read and learn how anyone can help. Order from UCC Resources here. $10 for a single copy or $37.50 for a 5-book package.
