OUR MISSION

is for children who have experienced or are currently experiencing

trauma to receive intense, consistent, one-on-one, reading intervention from

a trained reading specialist to outweigh the negative effects caused

by adverse childhood experiences.

DID YOU KNOW?

Children living in poverty experience more summer learning loss than their wealthier peers, but targeted summer learning programs can make a difference.

Camp Good Books and Shades

Literacy Summer Camp

At Camp Good Books and Shades, students receive one-to-one, intentional instruction designed specifically for their literacy needs. They have the opportunity to work collaboratively and independently in order to practice their emerging skills and strategies. We also address crucial social skills that students need at school and for their future.

Individual Tutoring

Before or After School Tutoring

Students are matched with a literacy specialist to receive one-on-one reading and writing instruction designed especially for their needs before, during,  or after school.

Teacher Mentoring

Professional Development for Teachers

Teachers are always looking for ways to increase their capacity in the classroom, especially in guided reading. Our classes offer individualized planning and problem solving as well as presentations from some of the most knowledgeable literacy specialists in our state.

Do you like to volunteer? I Would Rather Be Reading needs volunteers to read with children, take wellness walks, and complete art projects.
