Coweta Ferst Foundation’s Lewis Grizzard & Catfish Bike Ride

The Coweta Ferst Foundation is dedicated to providing age-appropriate books for every child under the age of five in Coweta County.  This mission is important because:

  1. Sixty-one percent of low-income families do not have a single piece of age-appropriate reading material in their home?
  2. One-third of Georgia’s children start school unprepared to learn?
  3. Seventy-five percent of Georgia’s students who are poor readers in the third grade will remain poor readers in high school?

The more words a child hears, the larger the child’s vocabulary and the larger the child’s vocabulary, the more likely the child will be a proficient reader.  However, in order to read with a child, books must be in the home.
