We had a fantastic morning introducing author PJ Haarsma to the sixth grade students at ASU Preparatory Academy via Skype this past fall to kick off the second year of Reading Revolution programming. It was thrilling to watch the faces of the kids as they laughed and interacted with the author and KNTR founder.

PJ dropped such great book teases!

The students left the auditorium very excited at the prospect of seeing him in person later in the semester.

We thank PJ Haarsma, Arizona State University, and ASU Preparatory Academy for partnering with Kids Need to Read in this ground-breaking program!
