It was a great way for students to practice their reading and share a book with an eager listener while being supported by a reading mentor. The fun of a R.E.A.D. session was tied in with the goal of giving parents an opportunity to read a book and set the example of recreational reading for their children.
We had 62 children R.E.A.D. with the dogs and the rabbit. There were over 120 people in attendance. We gave away 80 books from World Book Night and 74 children's books.
The program had coverage from Channel 12 and from the Sun Post.
