Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc., Boston, MA, USA
Hands Across the Sea is an excellent organization. This organization has helped to improve our school library, provided a stipend to the librarian and supplied interesting books to boost our students self esteem and to provide important new skills.
The King School Series was one of the series incorporated into the grades K and 1 curriculum with the aim to foster reading.The books were deemed well graded, the topics relevant and the pictures very attractive. Target words were easily tracked and enhanced progression from one level to the next. Students were enthusiastic and could not wait to exchange books.
Reading became a fun-filled affair rather than a chore. Students also got individual satisfaction of knowing they could read a book and seeing the numbers of books they checked out increased.
The Bagatelle Primary School endorses Hands Across the Sea as a leading partner in the development of literacy.
