Our Story

My father-in-law is a genius.  Really!!  Dean Kindig started his Summer Readers reading program in 1971 and has been helping children learn to read better every summer since.   Over 45 summers he helped more than 1100 kids.  Each year more of his fun creative genius goes into adding games and tweaking his successful program in Rochester, NY.
He has shared his games and techniques with me, Michelle Kindig, who married his amazing son, Mike, in 2000.
I am so excited to bring this program to my community in Austin, TX.
