"One of the greatest gifts adults can give - to their offspring and to their society - is to read to children"
Budding Readers - Marcus Whitman
The Budding Readers Program now serves the Marcus Whitman community. Watch for announcements in your school newsletter and fliers around town.

Age-appropriate books for siblings through age 7 are also provided. More than 113 "bundles" have been delivered to Marcus Whitman families.
The Marcus Whitman Budding Readers Program is coordinated by Kathy Burke, a retired English teacher from Marcus Whitman.
Budding Readers also provides a new book for each entering UPK and Kindergarten student in the Marcus Whitman district.
