A Deeper Look…

Read a Book, Earn a Book is designed to unfurl personal literacy potential and develop a life-long love of learning… but it is also designed to encourage the following:

  • Decision making (selecting the book)
  • Inquisitiveness/assertiveness (being encouraged to ask questions)
  • Patience and perseverance (earning the book over time)
  • Building relationships (enjoying quality time with an adult over time)
  • Building confidence (receiving one on one encouragement)
  • Stress reduction (learning made enjoyable)
  • Setting long term goals (earning the book)
  • Trust (receiving the book)

Our students believe that they are simply having fun reading with their “reading buddy”. Little to they know that we are encouraging essential skills that will help them succeed in school, and beyond.
