Bell Aliant Pioneers, Copperbelt Club, recently delivered 121 personalized readers to 10 classes in eight schools in Green Bay and White Bay areas. They got monetary help for the project from sponsors like Springdale Lions Club, Springdale Community Development Cooperative, Baie Verte Kinsmen, and the La Scie Kinsmen. 

Shawn Tibbo of the La Scie Kinsmen, Jamie Walsh of Baie Verte Kinsmen, Ernest Paddock and Jamie Hull of Springdale Lions, and Jennifer McKay and Harold Saunders of Springdale Community Development Cooperative also read to a group of students in their areas. 

The "I Like Me" book is a personalized reader developed for Kindergarten students. Using a rhyming story in which the kindergartner is the main character, the book appeals to a child's curiosity and makes the reading experience more enjoyable and inviting.

This book is a personalized book, about each child in their kindergarten class.  The book will include the name of each child, the names of two of their best friends, along with the name of their teacher and school principal. Also included is the school name, community, and the school year.

The “I Like Me” program is an important and motivating step in a child’s learning process. The purpose of the personalized approach is to allow children to become heroes in their own lives, and to provide a positive sensitivity towards self and towards learning.
