Celebrities To Read For Kids
May 23, 2011 by Misty Griffey
The Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting! Program (RWE) is hosting a reading and literacy event at the Westside Pavilion Barnes & Noble (10850 West Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90064) on June 4th & 7th to promote literacy and to shine a spotlight on how important it is for parents to read with their children.
To help ensure this message is heard, the organization has invited various celebrities to read a book (Dr. Seuss or other) for twenty minutes with one of the children at the event (or to their own children). RWE hopes the celebrity participation will help inspire other parents to undertake this all-so-important activity with their own children. Literacy experts have all stated that if parents read to, and with, their children from a young age, it would solve many of our literacy problems.
Celebrities confirmed include Scott L. Schwartz http://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/2295-scott-l-schwartz (Ocean’s 11, 13, 13, The Scorpion King), Sean Kanan http://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/2454-sean-kanan (The Young & The Restless, General Hospital), Aura Imbarus (Celebrity book author “Out Of The Transylvania Night”), Paula Labaredas (The Critic, Showgirl), Nancy La Scala (Species 2, In The Cut), Valery Ortiz http://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/2593-valery-ortiz(ABC’s Family Lounge), David Fralick (The Story Of Bonnie & Clyde, The Young & The Restless “Larry Warton”), Tommy Hobson (Nickelodeon’s “The Fresh Beat Band”), Tanya Chisholm (Nickelodeon’s “Big Time Rush”), Catalina Rodriquez (Watch Over Me, Dexter, Cougars) and Zach Callison (Hannah Montana, Sophia the Great).
RWE is a nonprofit literacy program designed to improve the reading and writing skills of at-risk children. They do this by providing one-to-one writing mentors throughout the school year for kids who are chosen by their teachers to participate. At the end of the school year, the kids get to read one of their stories at a Barnes & Noble, and then watch in special VIPseats as actors perform them for the audience.
The reason for their program is that research shows that if children aren’t writing and reading at their grade level by the end of second grade, they almost never catch up. Further research has also shown that as many as 80% of those kids eventually drop out of high school, are unemployed, are in prison or join gangs. And how accurate are those numbers? Several states actually base their future prison building plans on them! What’s the situation like in Los Angeles? There are over 45,000 second grade students in L.A., and only 41% of them are proficient in writing and reading. We must help all of them… Also the spacing is funky between the DisneyInfonet stories/links (see between the Staples story and the Relay for life story). I am going to send photos to add to the news page that goes with each of the stories as well.
