BOUNTIFUL - Natalie Hattaway and her son, Tate, look over the books available as rewards for Davis School District students who earned the title, “Most Accomplished Reader.”
Students who made the most progress in reading over the year were given $50 worth of books to enjoy over the summer.
Hattaway, a reading teacher at South Davis Junior High, brought her son to purchase some books as well.
“It’s a life skill,” said Hattaway, of reading. “You have to be able to read even to work at McDonald’s.” She said with movies or television, “everything’s done for them,” but reading allows students to get creative.
It also helps make better writers, she said. Students in grades K through 12 received the gift books.
The program is sponsored by the Davis Education Foundation.
