“I just think we made it a welcoming environment, but without a lot of expectations you could do with it, what you wanted. I think the biggest part was that literacy and books transcends all other barriers that we have in our communities. It doesn’t matter if you’re from this side of the tracks or that side of the tracks or what school you go to or who your mom is or where your dad works. Literacy and reading is something that everyone enjoys or could enjoy and sees value in.I think that’s one of the main differences for this project because all the people that are part of it still realize one, the importance of reading and two, that it’s just the simple things that can bring joy to a child.”

Paige Kinnaird: Scaling impact from 1 to 100,000

“What I saw as high quality professional development, the conversations, the books we read and discussed, which I love the books that you choose for us, because it takes us in a different direction than just the books that we normally read as administrators about education. But that connection piece at a deeper level, with members of your group, that, that was something I wasn’t expecting, but I’m very thankful for that.”
