Every child is gifted. Matthew 25 believes it is important to invest in that giftedness. Book Buddies invites caring adults to give an hour or two of their time each week to help first graders become stronger readers. It’s an investment that pays off for a child’s lifetime. It also provides great returns to the mentor: in smiles, hugs, and the knowledge that you are truly making a positive difference.
Book Buddies currently operates at Taylor and Cleveland elementary schools. To learn more about becoming a Book Buddy, contact Matthew 25 at email@example.com or 319-362-2214.
