Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

It's almost time for carved pumpkins, crazy costumes, and of course, the "Halloween, Mysteries, and Magic" Reading Clubs!  The stories are spooky, the crafts are creepy, and the magic is simply magnificent. The kids love our October clubs featuring magic shows, and you will too. Feel free to dress in your school-appropriate Halloween finest. Sign up early for the October 9th reading clubs by clicking here.

We'll also be kicking off our Annual Fund Drive!  Stay tuned: there will be more about this in the coming weeks.
