Frederick Douglass once said,

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”

Reading is vitally important to a child’s imagination and education.

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) notes,

At all three gradesstudents who more frequently read for fun on their own time had higher average proficiencies.

In addition to this, the NCES aptly observes,

Children who are read to at least three times a week by a family member are almost twice as likely to score in the top 25% in reading compared to children who are read to less than 3 times a week.

With low literacy rates in public schools throughout Illinois and the United States in general, the stimulation of children’s minds through reading is more important than ever.

Yet, books like Gender QueerGirl is Ruthie’s Gender IdentityNon-Binary Is a Helpful Word, and I’m Not A Girl are the types of stories being pushed on America’s children.

Stories filled with lies, deception, and explicit material.

What are parents to give their children as an alternative to the literature found in schools, public libraries, and bookstores?

Brave Books offers parents a Christian alternative.
