Love of Reading

Reading is an important part of my life. When I had my little girl I made a point to read to her every night--I even read to her on her first night home! She enjoys this nightly ritual and luckily has many age appropriate books to choose from. I've been working with preschool children and their families for five years now and discovered that my daughter is lucky. She has parents who can read and who take the time to read. Sadly, I've learned some children have never been read to nor have one age appropriate book in their home. Is it because their parents are unable to read? If the parents are able to read, why aren't they reading to their child? Are they working too many hours? Do they not have the resources to obtain age appropriate books? Can I help???
So many questions....
