Eight parents, 11 teachers, and two principals were interviewed regarding changes in children's reading as a result of participation in the Energy Express summer reading program. Parents noticed improvements in their children's reading, whereas teachers emphasized socialization gains. There were significant differences between school personnel's connections with children in larger schools and smaller school communities. (SK)
