When kids read, their brain cells are literally turned on, and existing links among brain cells are strengthened and new cell links are formed. Reading is also one of the best activities to provide the foundation language and literacy skills that a child needs to succeed. And let's not forget how reading aloud connects us -- reader and listener -- in a very intimate way. When we read aloud to kids, we send them this message: You are important. This time is for you. Reading is an important part of a child's learning process.

Books play pivotal role in life of a student. It acts as a gateway for him to know and be par at the ever changing world. Many times students from the poor section of our society doesn't have access to the finest reading material. We are grateful to a District Governor of Rotary dist. 3105 Rotarian Gopinath, who has donated 6 different books to our foundation. Reading is a way for children to make connections between what they already know and what they read about in books. These connections help children understand the world around them. In addition, through books, children are exposed to characters and cultures that they may not otherwise interact with in real life.
