Meet Keisha: Reach Out and Read of Greater New York Parent

By amandaberlin on January 4, 2017 in Blog
Keisha W. is a mother of three, 13 year old daughter, Shavea,  6 year old son, Mehki (pictured) and 19 month old, Zuria (pictured)
When asked what kind of books her children enjoy, she reported Shavea currently likes the “Goosebumps” series and Mehki likes “Pete the Cat.”
When asked about her experience with her children’s physician Dr. Kokotos, she said, “I love how she works, her drive. She actually cares and puts in the extra effort to make sure that my kids are okay.”
Keisha credits Reach Out and Read of Greater New York with the fact that all her children can read. “This program helps us get access to books. We’ve participated since my oldest daughter, who is 13, saw Dr. Kokotos as a baby. We read together every night, and now, my oldest daughter reads to her younger siblings. Just today, Mehki received his report card, and his teacher told me he’s an independent reader. He’s above average for his age!”
