Our Story

Book Buddies was founded by Gracie Yoon over the COVID-19 pandemic. When it was no longer possible to tutor her students in person and schools were closed, she read them children's books over zoom. With the help of Ava Vorabhanda and Petra Tannous, Gracie recruited volunteer readers and created Book Buddies. Book Buddies provides a space online where those wanting to serve their community can record themselves reading a book and students seeking extra help can listen and read along, all while staying safe.
