Another ReaDch Celebration!

As a reward for completing the second book in our ReaDch series "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story," the youth from Aliamanu celebrated with a pizza & ice cream party and a movie night at the Spalding BGCH. The youth were excited to have the privilege to party in the Laker's Reading Room, an appropriate site for the theme of the night! They watched the movie version of the book they had just finished earlier in the week. Arii shared: "I really loved the book and the movie we watched because it talks about a boy who grows up to be a neurosurgeon (a doctor who does surgery on the brain) and he saves a lot of people's lives." Maria thought it was "super fun and the movie was really good!" And Gabby enjoyed the opportunity to spend quality time with her friends. All in all, the book and the celebration taught the youth that reading pays off!
