Reading Buddies: From Bookless to Bookworm

by |

Getting your kids excited about reading can be difficult, but this program can help! Reading Buddies, an upcoming program which will be offered in several locations across the Cincinnati area, offers a chance for your child to enhance their reading skills with the help of a friend. This summer-long program pairs every child with a volunteer teen ready to teach them how to read and have fun doing it. Any child entering Kindergarten through fifth grade this fall can register to be paired with a teen mentor with whom they will meet weekly to pick out books and do fun learning activities. This program will be offered at the following locations at the listed dates and times:
