The National ReadMobile, sponsored by We Give Books, a group aimed at improving literacy, stopped in Woodhaven last week to deliver books and prizes to PS 306, which completed the Read for My School program, under which students read 25 or more books on the We Give Books website.

The program, funded by the Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation, brought an interactive reading program to students hosted by the Pearson Foundation’s Nicole Holland, top, and allowed kids to take part in a project aimed at teaching the importance of reading, above left, before Holland handed out free books to the students, above right.

The foundation also awarded the school $1,000 in products from Leap Frog for taking part in the program.
