Business Review

"Bark for Books has ignited an excitement in our children for reading. They are not being judged by their level of reading by classroom peers but [are] able to go to a supportive, calm environment where reading is encouraged and celebrated." –Tiffany B.

"[DCL art camp] was a tremendous camp, and my son absolutely loved it. It was a fantastic experience and Ms. Natalie, as well as your staff, did a wonderful job. We were very impressed with how many different types of projects the students were exposed to and the quality of the portfolio by the end of the week." –Michelle Z.
