- Teachers and parents see their students become part of a global community of readers. *
- Students are engaged at an age when reading for pleasure tends to fall off due to electronic distractions and more academic reading.
- KLQ creates a culture of reading - library trafﬁc increases and readers are celebrated throughout the school.
- Readers experience being part of a team.
- KLQ attracts all students - roughly 40% of competitors each year are boys.
- Studies show that students who read for pleasure (and fun) have higher test scores in vocabulary, spelling and maths.
