Abstract

Book buddy programs engage older and younger readers in reading activities and could be a way to influence student attitudes on reading. In this study, students were administered to Elementary Reading Attitude Survey (ERAS) (McKenna & Kear, 1990) to a buddy reading participant class of fifth grade students, a non-participant fifth grade class, a participant kindergarten class, and a non-participant kindergarten class, By comparing these survey results this study answers the question: Is there a difference in students; attitudes toward reading between buddy reading program participants and non-participants?
