Book Buddies

This morning I photographed a weekly summer reading program for children in Grades 1-3 in Elementary School.  The weekly program pairs the "Little Buddies", who are the Elementary students, with the "Big Buddies", who are teenagers that volunteer their time and read with the younger kids at Perry's Public Library.  In this assignment, I was focusing on the relationship these "buddies" have together while they are reading and hanging out.  I also learned about Silly Bands which are arm bracelets that form a shape when not being worn but stretch and become a bracelet when worn.
