Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan
As Governor, I have put a particular emphasis on improving our children’s reading levels by the third grade. That means encouraging children at the earliest stages to discover a love for reading. Promoting reading to our children early on can help them develop strong reading skills that are critical to long-term success.
That’s why I hope parents, teachers, and students at all level participate in March is Reading Month. Reading is fun, and it can easily become part of your daily routine.
As we celebrate March is Reading Month, I urge all of you to read with your friends, family and classmates-- not just this month, but every month."
