For the Love of Books

Each week, AR Kids Read tutors share their love of reading with their students. During a tutoring session,
a tutor shows students how much fun reading can be by reading aloud in a goofy voice or encouraging the
student to illustrate their favorite scene.

 

Oftentimes, when the students leave school, they do not have access to books. When school is not in
session for a few weeks, these students may not crack open any books. In December, the AR Kids Read
tutors handed brand new copies of Frog and Toad, Amelia Bedelia, and other favorites to their students.

 

The students’ faces lit up as they discovered that they could take the books home. Students were so
excited to write their names on the inside cover and share these stories with their families. One of
the students told his tutor, “I’m going to read this book to my little brother.”

 

In the words of Dr. Seuss, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you
learn, the more places you’ll go!” Many thanks to all of our tutors for spreading the love of reading and
helping these students to go more places!
