Dads and Lads Bond over Books

Manatee Academy boys gather for a great event where 13 Lads brought their Dads, uncles or Grandpas!
Several boys gave Booktalks about a book they really liked. Two Dads gave Booktalks too. They then went on a website where they answered 10 questions to determine what kind of Superhero Reader they were. Each boy received a new copy of  Treasure Island to share with their significant male adult as well as a “Guys Read” bookmark. Pizza was enjoyed by all! Debbie Remington, Media Specialist, told them about recent research that showed that students who read for pleasure frequently not only improve their reading but also show gains in Math.
