We are excited that Books For Kids has been selected to develop the Reading Pals Program in Manatee County. Reading Pals, a statewide program designed by the Children’s Movement of Florida, is a volunteer-based Literacy initiative that provides mentors for students in Kindergarten who may need extra help, utilizing one on one support for 30 minutes a week for 25 weeks.
