6. The two activities below are part of the Clubs Literacy
Program chaired by Member Ruth Sanderson
The club spends about $1000 on the Josh the Otter Books
And applies to RI for a grant to help defray the cost.
The club spends about $1000 on the Brain Game books
And applies to RI for a grant to help defray the cost.
The Brain Game book is meant as a “how-to” guide for parents.
It was developed by pediatricians, neonatologists, and childhood
development specialists. The aim is to translate complicated
scientific research into easy to understand language. We want
to explain what is going on in each of the important stages of
birth-to-three development. We want to educate parents on things
they can do to keep their child safe and healthy in general. We
want to teach caregivers the things they can do to simulate
development processes in the brain. These are not just general
tips. They are timed to coordinate with the brain development
processes going on during each critical period.
That is a brief summary of our current activities and we will
report on others as they are pursued. We thank our members
and the community for supporting our programs.
"Consensus: The process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values, and policies in search of something in which no one believes, but to which no one objects; the process of avoiding the very issues that have to be solved, merely because you cannot get agreement on the way ahead. What great cause would have been fought and won under the banner: 'I stand for consensus?'" Margaret Thatcher
