P4K Book Buddy Program helps young people succeed by establishing supportive and beneficial relationships between children and caring adults in an effort to inspire students and build literacy skills.  P4K Book Buddy mentors spend 30 minutes per classrooms reading the provided book and facilitating the activity that accompanies the book.  The program runs for 7 visits during the school year.  Partnership 4 Kids will coordinate the visits and will bring all of the items needed to each visit. Each month Book Buddies will read some of the most engaging grade-appropriate fiction and nonfiction books the classrooms and each student receives a copy of the book to take home.  This further enhances reading skills and enjoyment.
