The Bookzle story starts with Kenton’s story. Shortly after Kenton was born we found out that he had a rare genetic disorder that affected his hearing, requiring him to use hearing aids. As part of his treatment, and in an effort to help him stay on track developmentally, we learned about the power and impact of daily reading, for him, and all children. It changed our lives! We knew that reading aloud to our kids was a good thing to do, but we had no idea just how critical it was to their literacy and cognitive development. We knew we had to spread the word!
