What to Expect
We will meet once a week to read as a whole group and one on one.
Each child will be given a reading log to keep track of the books that they have read and to write down the books they would like to read by the end of the program.
The kids will get a point for each book read and each meeting attended to receive a book box at the end of the program that will include books, a t-shirt, and other prizes. As a bonus, kids who share photos of them reading during the week will get extra points for a chance to win a gift card.
Meet Camp Leader
After reading a newsletter that stated if third graders couldn’t read on grade level they would have to repeat the 3rd grade. Shocked by this news, a 8-year-old Karter Johnson did research on the topic and learned that a lack of books in the home and not having anyone to read with were 2 huge issues. So he launched Popcorn and Books via Universal Popcorn, LLC., Popcorn and Books is a literacy company that's dedicated to encouraging kids to read more and to enjoy reading.
After being in business for a year and a half Popcorn and Books is now a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Through that organization Karter has launched 'Build A Kid’s Library' where we send high-quality, age-appropriate books to kids ages 5-10 in Detroit, MI. and it's surrounding areas once a month at no cost to their families.
