Reading Pays More Launches #LoveReadingWithDad Father’s Day Campaign
For Immediate Release
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
On Father’s Day, Florida Non Profit Organization, Reading Pays More is encouraging dads to do something that could change their child’s life for the better……read to them! Studies have shown, reading to young children is proven to be the single most important thing a parent can do to ensure their child’s success in school and later in life. Reading not only improves a child’s language development — the best predictor of school success — but it also creates a stronger bond between parents and children.
This Father’s Day, June 18, 2017, Reading Pays More is pushing the importance of parents reading with their children via a social media campaign called #lovereadingwithdad. The group is encouraging dads, grandpops and uncles of all ages to share a picture of themselves reading a book with a child using the hashtag #lovereadingwithdad.
“We want to spread the word that reading together is not only fundamental, but it also helps create a strong parental bond,” says Georgia Robinson, President of Reading Pays More. And it is especially important for parents to read with their young boys, she said.
“A large numbers of boys aren’t reading, and this fact is contributing to a daunting achievement gap between boys and girls,” Robinson said.
Robinson says the group launched a similar campaign for Mother’s Day.

About Reading Pays More
We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that markets the financial and other benefits of reading.
OUR MISSION is to nurture a culture of reading so that every child is reading and comprehending above AGE- level.
ReadingPaysMore (RPM) was founded Georgia D.N. Robinson, an immigrant from the Caribbean, who continues to serve her community as an attorney, mediator and reading ambassador. She has a passion for education but found that the fundamental skill of reading, above all, was being neglected. Georgia also speaks on the topics of student motivation and entrepreneurship.
Georgia saw first-hand how the lack of basic reading skills could affect and alter someone’s way of life, as her father was illiterate and struggled to maintain the “back office” of his business. Georgia spent many of her childhood days reading her father’s business letters, writing and responding to customers and contractors.
RPM is part of Georgia’s vision to foster a culture of reading in every community and ensure that every child is reading and comprehending above grade-level regardless of the status of her or his biological parents.
She believes that through RPM children will not only build a better future for themselves but will become loving, kind, healthy, prosperous and self-sufficient adults who will continue to share their knowledge and love of words by paying it forward.
