A group of Madison Consolidated High School students presented third-graders at Lydia Middleton Elementary School with free books Wednesday.
The books were paid for with a Madison Education Foundation grant.
The group - Team Lead - started as a club at Madison Consolidated High School and has since formed a group at the middle school.
"Team Lead is a group of students that want a positive learning and social environment," team member Quentin Tingle said. "Mentoring reading is important for their future success."
Jenna Tester took home "The Littles," one book in a series of children's novels about a family of tiny people. Jenna already has three books in the series.
"I do like reading," Jenna said. "I read a lot. Most of the books I read are 'American Girl' books. There are a lot of them."
After the books were distributed, the third-graders read to the older students.
