  • A barbershop in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, is helping kids build their confidence and encouraging them to read with their program ‘Books by Kids.’

    City Cuts Barbershop started ‘Books by Kids’ as a way to help children avoid a fear of public speaking. The shop pays their customers three dollars to read stories aloud while barbers work on their haircut.
