School officials say it's good to get kids in that reading habit. School #34 Principal Carmine Peluso said, " Kids just need to have the books in their hands. they need to hear from their parents and sit and read with them. It becomes a family activity and through reading that can be fun. Reading has to be fun."
The program is part of a partnership between the school and the Center for Youth.
