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?
Participate in this unique, all-church initiative, the United Church of Christ's inaugural One Read of the inspirational book, Hot Dogs & Hamburgers: Unlocking Life's Potential by Inspiring Literacy at Any Age, by Rob Shindler. The book is available for $10.00 single copy (plus shipping) or $37.50 five-book-package (plus shipping) from UCC Resources.
And it's simple to participate. Yet rewarding, motivating, and educational.
The "One Read" is recommended to begin in early September (on September 8, 2014, National Literacy Day). The free discussion guide with suggested timeline is now available for free download (here). Additionally, an eBook is available directly through Amazon, and an audio version of the book will be made available this summer.
Buy and read the book, download the free discussion guide, and encourage your congregation, friends and family to join in. It's that simple.
