The Book Buddies program pairs high schoolers with both preschool kids and middle schoolers.
The older kids wouldn’t miss a week for the world. This week, they read a book called “If I Built A Car,” then the kids teamed up to actually build toy cars with Lego bricks and Play Doh.
"It’s important to have a program like this because we foster a liking for reading because I know a lot of kids lose it, especially around middle school," said Arianna Kaufman, Orange High School junior.
The Book Buddies program is funded by a grant from author James Patterson and Scholastic Book Club.
