Through the fun and excitement of weekly team meetings and the final competition, kids improve their reading skills, mature in their choice of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base of classic and contemporary literature. Even during the height of competition, kids will be encouraged to remember that our shared goals are to READ and HAVE FUN, not necessarily to win!
