Read It All Up™ will be a searchable, interactive resource for a fun, rewarding, and delicious activity we discovered with our kids:
It is also an in-school and after-school enrichment program to help kids not only learn to read but LOVE to read.
to help kids discover the joy in reading and eating right. We realize two of the biggest gifts we can give children are:
We found combining the two takes the "Do I have to?" out of reading, and the "I don't want to!" out of eating healthy food. Instead, we're serving up an irresistible way to engage kids in luscious storytelling that will inspire them to enjoy a lifelong passion for books and good food.
In a pilot program at Philip's Academy Charter School in Newark, N.J., students devoured books featuring pancakes, beans, apples and peas, and poems about plums, ginger, and salt. Literally tasting the words triggered profoundly personal connections we explored in post-reading discussion. School educators were thrilled with the students' sustained reading focus and enthusiastic engagement in discussion. We are SEEKING FUNDING to expand the program to other schools and community centers.
