Read what schools are saying

“It’s amazing to watch students who hate to read become so enthusiastic.  A real measure of success is when they start bringing their own books from home to read to Kaiser.”
“One boy had difficulty reading aloud, he read one time to Kaiser and really opened up.  In fact, when he left the room with Kaiser, he was telling the other kids, Hey, read this book to him!  He likes it.”
“Student enjoyed reading and visiting with Kaiser.  On the days Kaiser was at school, it was a bright spot for the student in an otherwise rough school week.”
“Program is definitely beneficial to a struggling reader.”
“Student is more eager to read and willing to try.”
