appreciate a program that provides an educational
opportunity and still the children enjoy themselves and are
entertained. I love the way the show was interrelated, the
building of the objectives, the sneaky way facts are put it,
and your wonderful audience control."

Every program promotes reading and library use. It is a
dominant theme in each and every production because study
after study has shown that children who read for pleasure
score higher on any and all tests when compared as a group
to those who do not read for pleasure. It doesn't matter
what children read; comics, newspapers, fiction,
non-fiction, or even their sister's diary...well, maybe not
that. Therefore Roosevelt Rat's primary objective in each
program is to motivate the students to use the library to
find the books that interest them and continue the learning
process through self-directed learning.
seen another library program that has so inspired and
motivated our kids to read! They were literally
begging for books."
