Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc., Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Lauders Primary School in St. Vincent and the Grenadines has benefited tremendously from donations from Hands Across the Sea. In the Fall of 2017, we received a windfall of wonderful leveled readers, including the King Series with small tubs to keep them neatly shelved. These we have used daily with students to motivate them and improve their reading. It was especially helpful to be given multiple copies of books for small group teaching and guided reading practice. In addition, Hands Across the Sea provided materials to process the books. The administrators of the Hands Across the Sea program personally visited our school to see how we were doing with the new materials and to get feedback about the program. It is a blessing to have their help and it has indeed positively impacted our reading program and student success. I like the practice Hands Across the Sea uses of asking schools for a wish list and striving to meet the request with suitable books.
