RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, USA, September 10, 2016 / -- Tackle Reading is a movement that will make a major impact on America’s illiteracy rates. The USA has 32 million adults, 14% of the population who can’t read. 80% of 9 year olds from low-income schools read below grade level. Over 45 literacy experts, authors, NFL players, celebrities, and educational foundations collaborated to create a book complete with lessons, reading activities, and inspiring stories. Thousands of Tackle Reading books will be donated to inner-city elementary schools nationwide. This book is created in conjunction with, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to support injured athletes with educational support.

The reading resource will provide quality reading instruction for children of all ages. In addition to the book, author Kathryn Starke will kick off a Tackle Reading tour that will provide professional development opportunities, literacy coaching, and speaking engagements to elementary schools across the country. Starke has over a decade’s worth of experience coaching and training urban elementary teachers and administrators in reading instruction. She successfully brings failing schools to full accreditation in one year.
Starke founded Creative Minds Publications, LLC, to promote creative and educational materials for children. For information regarding the Tackle Reading book, tour, and speaking engagements, email or contact her at 804-357-0104. Visit for more details.
