Cozy Bookworm


If you are reading my blog, feel blessed that you can do so.
Did you know that four out of ten adult Canadians and one in five Americans struggle with low literacy?

Considering those Adult Canadians with low literacy levels, 15 percent have serious problems dealing with any printed materials, while 27 percent can only deal with the most simple reading facts. Less than ten percent of Canadians who could benefit from literacy upgrading do so. Research indicates that barriers such as employment or financial problems, lack of transportation prevent individuals from enrolling.

Being an individual who loves to read, I could not even imagine not being able to do so. Even tasks that would be considered simple to most, such as reading street signs, filling out a job application or perusing a menu are virtually impossible for those who have literacy problems.
