Book-a-Paloozas are fun events where every student at a school receives a new book to build their home libraries. We strive to help students develop a love for reading, Book-a-Palooza events aim to place an an appropriate-level book that piques their interest into the hands of each student and encouraging students to read for pleasure. Extensive research studies found that the number of books in a student's home and students reading for pleasure is a better predictor of academic achievement than parent education level or socioeconomic status. Join us by volunteering today to help at a Book-a-Palooza!
