"The visits by authors really do inspire kids to read. My 4th grader is dyslexic and do not enjoy reading. He came home the other day, and for the first time, asked me to buy him books. He wanted the Lunch Lady series by Jarrett Krosoczka. I bought him the series and finally we don't have to fight him to do his required reading every night.
We are fortunate to have the FBE and the dedicated volunteers who run it. You are truly making a difference in children's lives."
