What parents have said about the program:
“This program benefited both my little son and my grade six daughter. She didn't just improve her reading skills but also developed a sense of responsibility."
“It was the highlight of our day. The way my daughter read to her small cousin, it was evident that she felt important to him and she was enjoying what she was doing.”
What students have said about the program:
“I really liked reading to my little sister because we got to spend more time together."
“I really liked reading to my reading buddy. I liked that I got to teach him that words go left to right. I felt like a leader when I read to Dexter."
What principals and teachers have said about the program:
“This is an excellent program for all parties. Readership and leadership are taught."
“Students enjoy coming to exchange books and telling me about their experiences reading at home. Quality time between siblings is being integrated into these homes. Awesome!"
