New books for Matthew who is learning to read

Posted May, 11, 2017
Matthew would love to pick out some books of his very own. When Matthew first came to foster care, he would very shyly sit with his foster father who would read books to him. This became a favorite activity. Over this past school year, Matthew is improving with his reading skills and is now able to read words on his own! He is very proud of how much he has learned and enjoys reading.
