  • My daughter has been on summer vacation for less than a week and is already reading one of the books she was gifted by your program. Although she and I were planning on having a summer reading challenge before receiving these literary gifts, I would like to thank you all who are involved in this from the bottom of my heart. I have always instilled the importance of reading in our home and an understanding of its importance and impact on a bright future. We had purchased books throughout the year through Scholastic, Ebay, Amazon, Goodwill, etc… but every book counts. Thank you again! It’s greatly appreciated.
