“I want to thank you and the Parentis Foundation for providing another fabulous year of Reading for my granddaughter. She is definitely a success story thanks to your organization, her tutors, and the Boys & Girls Club. A Big “Thank You!”
I have to share with you what I observed while on our trip during spring break. She loved to share the chapter stories she read along the way. Very proud of herself as she finished one more chapter. I was pleasantly surprised that she asked me to buy her three more hard-bound books and a set of other books to read, instead of asking for toys! She put them in her backpack because she said she would read them all at the same time. Many times, she chose to read as a fun activity to keep herself busy at the hotel and on the road.
This is not the same girl who a few years ago told me “she did not have to learn how to read.” Is it? I call this wonderful and credit the Parentis Foundation Reading Program and all of you for teaching a special love for reading.”
