Review for Make Way For Books, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I can't even begin to describe the wonderful experiences that are provided by MWFB. We just celebrated our first year as make way for books students. I say we because not only has my son benefited and learned from this program, I too have learned a lot. In my experiences with MWFB we have attended the story time classes available at the location and also attended multiple Raising a Reader classes available at local elementary schools. My son and I enjoy these raising a reader classes because we are able to take home a bag of books each week with 5-6 books that are new and geared towards his age group. The hour long class is taught by 3-4 different teachers who truly have a good passion to teach young students and families how important reading is. My daughter who is 6 years old also benefits from the book bag when we are home because she is a bilingual student and our book bags are filled with Spanish and English books. Within 7 weeks we get to read about 35-40 new books without going to a library or spending money on purchasing them. The program also offers a complementary selection of healthy snacks that we also enjoy. A couple months ago we had the privilege of meeting the singer song writer Jose Luis Orozco at a private party at the Make Way for Books Location which has been another moment in our learning experience that we will never forget. We got to sing and dance and enjoy our evening together with the brilliant artist. Ive recommended the program to our friends and family and just by sharing photos on social media, I've been able to show my community how beneficial this program has been not only for my son but for our family as a whole. I could go on and on about our positive experiences with teachers and staff from make way for books. I couldn't thank the program enough for all of the enriching moments we've shared.

Our family has participated for about 6 months, and in this 6 months we have read over 50 new books and we were also gifted with five books to keep. We are so impressed with the level of attention and activies that make way for books provides us. Can't wait to keep participating.
