“It was really fun and I learnt lots of things. [On reading days] I was really excited. I loved it because I love books.
“Now all I think is, ‘I wonder what book I'm getting next.’ I'm like, come on, let's give me some bigger books!”
Reading has become Zeke’s sanctuary. He loves going on adventures with ‘Captain Underpants’. And Corrina says the books you help provide through student2student make a real impact.
“Zeke was on quite a low reading level initially. He had a lot of trouble with the bigger words and he would just skip them. He wouldn't even try,” said Corrina.
“During student2student his reading jumped up really quickly. The books were actually funny. I think that was what started his proper interest in reading.
“He has ended up obsessed with reading. He reads absolutely everything now. He hounds the library lady all the time when there are new books coming out.”
Your support hasn’t just helped Zeke to read. It has also opened new ways for him to express himself. Now he writes his own stories and they have made him a real hit with his class mates.
