Read Aloud Mentoring Program
Scholastic R.E.A.L. helps young people succeed by establishing supportive and beneficial relationships between community members/volunteers and caring adults in an effort to inspire students and build literacy skills.
R.E.A.L provides mentors with the best books and easy to use, step-by step companion guides, freeing them to focus on building connections with their mentees. Each child receives a copy of the book to build their home libraries along with a take-home guide filled with fun activities that help the reader engage with the book in different ways.
What It Includes
- High Interest, Fiction and non-Fiction books - to build home libraries
- Step-by-step mentor guide for each title - freeing mentors to focus on building connections with their mentees.
- Student Take Home Guide - filled with fun activities that help the reader engage with the book in different ways.

Our district is focused on literacy, and being able to have these great volunteers serve as mentors and give their time was a positive example of how a lifelong love of reading can be beneficial in any career our students would choose.
