That is to say, if all of you were squeezed into one body, you could do worse than using it as your online dating profile. Here is what the lists say about you: you like a little mystery in your life and are a bit of thrill-seeker; you like to eat, but you're watching your weight; your house, well, frankly, your house could use a little tidying up. Your kids are fond of stories with talking animals, dorks and wimps and they really, really, really like Mo Willems.

There's no doubt about that. We know how important literacy is for success. We know--because we've seen it--how hard life is for people who struggle with the written word. From traffic sign to mortgage contracts, the ability to read keeps you out of a lot of jams.
