Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
We had a terrific time at our July Reading Clubs last Saturday, where we celebrated "Independence and Growing Up" with
289 kids, 188 volunteers, 63 parents, and 18 teachers & staff! Our reading clubs may be a bit smaller in the summer, but it's a great time to read a terrific book, make fun crafts, and really get to know our kids.

These events set the course for the rest of the year
and are a wonderful way to interact with the kids and their parents,
as well as to honor the teachers. The more we publicize
at the beginning of the school year, the more children and families we'll serve all year.
Please reply to this email or call the office if you
want to know more about being an Ambassador and the schedule of
