MT. COMFORT — For 11-year-old Colin Brown, reading through another chapter book is a piece of cake.
But for the younger students at Mt. Comfort Elementary School, it can be more challenging. And that was one of the ideas behind the school’s newest program to build a community of readers at the school. It’s called “One School, One Book.”
“It’s to get them excited about reading,” MCES Principal Heather Whitaker said. “It can really get their families involved. We’ve found that with the families that read at home together, the kids do so much better.”
