EW!USA makes a difference in the lives of countless through a very simple belief of one child, one book, and one reader. This simple connection drives fantastic results. The excitement that is generated for learning in children when an adult takes the time to read is unmatched. Nobody does it better than EW!USA

I have been an EW! reading mentor in Stamford CT for three years now, and it is a powerful experience. There is nothing more exciting than reading with a young elementary school student and discussing the characters and ideas in the books we share. The young boys I have worked with are always excited on "Power Lunch" days, because they come to associate reading with the focused attention of a caring adult. EW research shows that this positive experience carries over into other academic achievement for the students, as well as fostering a better attitude toward reading and learning overall. This is a valuable, valuable program.
