i met a girl at a party, Simone Ellis, and she told me about this project she had to coincide with the Australian year of the book. Turns out that 37 % of Australians have the bare minimum of reading skills to get by in the modern world. A staggering 16 % can't read a label on a pill bottle to determine the correct dosage of medicine for their children. The idea is to try and get people back into libraries to connect with their children, grow their minds and turn this around. I am big on reading to my son. i love reading him stories. Its a part of every single day we have together. I was really intrigued by her enthusiasm and drive for this project and signed on. Simone trusted me to craft it creatively and structurally. Also importantly we all had alot of fun.
