Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Even though Saturday was the first day of their Spring break, this past Saturday we had 802 kids, 329 volunteers, 91 parents, and 22 teachers & staff join us for our April 8th reading clubs!

Thank you note from an Alta Loma kid

Sign up early for our May 13th reading clubs! RSVP for these magical Fantasy, Folklore, & Fairytales reading clubs here.

Please also take a moment to join our May 13th Facebook event. Your friends will be able to see that you're attending the reading clubs, and you can help spread the word by inviting them to join, too.
