Starting the School Day

Reader to Reader is spending the week on the Navajo Nation, working with librarians and school officials.

Also high on the list is working with elementary and high school students that have been part of our Navajo Mentoring Program.

Pictured are Amherst College students, Alex Strecker and Kat Libby, at the entrance to St. Michael Indian School in St. Michaels, Arizona.

The two started their day working with the 5th grade students on the elements of a short story they were reading.

They will spend the afternoon leading a book discussion with the high school sophomores working on Alice Walker's short story Everyday Use.
