The hard stuff
The Porter Project awesome stuff...
“Kids aren’t excited
to read at home!“
The Porter Project creates excitement through the madness of launch, media attention, and the interactive nature of the books for Bigs and Littles alike.
“Parents aren’t sure how to read with their kids!”
Parents follow the lead of their children who have practiced reading the books at school...the kids are the ‘experts’. Books are sent home with parent homework which includes videos of the author reading aloud for inspiration.
Books go home with kids for FREE!
Costs are covered by foundation and
Porter books can be read in
under 10 minutes, but they are
often read again and again!
“New books are expensive!”
“There isn’t enough time at home to read out loud with kids!“

“Students were excited to share/own
a book with their parents. They loved
that they would be able to keep it!”
“The kids in my class love sharing
their reading experiences from
home with their friends at school”
“My students were visibly
engaged with the joy of
reading this book.”
“This project gets students and their
families working together to improve
literacy skills. Not all families put education
before other aspects of life so any tools we
can use to help them make reading a part
of their daily lives are important.”
