I have never seen a program work for native children and children of color the way this program does.  It is a culturally responsive, gap closing curriculum.

I have watched this program turn poor readers into strong readers.  Students that once told me they hated reading now can’t wait till we begin book groups.  Thank you for being willing to put out a program that allows students to fall in love with reading and understand what it is they are reading.
