Leveling the battlefield to aid terrorists enables evil to fight on

The first three years of a child's development are critical, and many kids don't get the stimulation they need, the American Academy of Pediatricians says, as it encouraged doctors to encourage parents to read aloud to their kids.
Parents always hope for a child to rank at the top of their class, but Brian Gallagher has three times the parental gratification. His triplets -- Andrew, Austin and A.J. Gallagher -- are ranked Nos. 1, 2 and 10 in their graduating class at Wayne High School.
Fourteen published studies prove that ROR works, said Brian Gallagher, acting executive director of Reach Out and Read.
Fifteen minutes in a well child visit may not seem like enough time for a doctor to learn much from the book exchange, but Gallagher says many doctors say the books help make the visit more efficient, allowing them to gauge parental reactions and the child’s development in a matter of seconds.
