Book Buddies is a program where teen reading buddies ages 13-17 read with younger kids currently enrolled in 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade to build vocabulary and strengthen reading comprehension. This program does not teach reading skills. It does build upon already existing reading skills taught at home or in school.
