Review for Book'em, Nashville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

RIF is a fine organization, and RIF Nashville's chapter is a truly fabulous one in that our approach is to build a relationship between a reading volunteer and a classroom that involves 5 visits during a school year and the chance for kids to not only hear 5 stories (just for fun) but to choose 5 books with which to begin building their personal library. Because the children we serve often do not own ANY books besides the ones we give them, this is very exciting for them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the excitement about reading that this generates in children who otherwise see reading often simply as a tool or an assignment -- whereas through RIF and Book'Em they come to see reading as FUN!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the chance to share the fun of reading with kids.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed and cheery

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

give away more books!
