After school program teacher, Alexis Sandoval, introduced her students to the RedRover Readers program in the START after school program at Golden Empire Elementary School. She then entered her school into the RedRover Readers Impact Contest -- and they won! Soon after, RedRover taught the whole school -- all 22 teachers -- to implement the RedRover Readers program in their classrooms, just in time for the 2015-2016 school year.

Ernesto's kitten

by Nicole Forsyth, RedRover President and CEO

Imagine not knowing what a kitten’s “purr” or “meow” means. Ernesto, a first-grader who lives in an apartment with his mother and sister in Los Angeles, California, didn’t understand what it meant when cats purred until his first-grade teacher, Susan Courtney, introduced him to the RedRover Readers program.
