This program was started as a way to help keep youngsters stay interested in reading books during a time when the Internet and video games have overshadowed literature. “I feel reading is the most powerful tool in shaping the minds of our youth, even if the children read for only five minutes.

Whether information is gained from a book, newspaper or the Internet, the ability to read and understand it is essential for children to learn about the world around them and to find their place in it.
