People are talking about what Kids Read Now means to them.

It gives parents who usually don't have the means to buy books a chance to give their children a chance to read.

My six and eight-year-old boys were so excited to read new books and receiving them in the mail was like receiving a present. It made reading each night more enjoyable.

I think books are an integral part of learning, especially during the summer. Reading a book is less like "work" and more like a treat. It's always fun for young ones to get something in the mail which makes them even more excited to read it.

Having students select books they are interested in and having them mailed to their homes has been a huge benefit for our students.

Families loved the engagement and excitement students felt over the summer months when a new book arrived. Educators loved the fact that we were getting books in our student's hands over the summer months helping to decrease the summer slide.

The kids love getting the books throughout the summer and come in the following school year talking about all the awesome books that they got. I can tell it definitely encourages the kids to read.
