Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Children who don't read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading skills. Sign up
today for our July 14th Summer Fun & Games reading clubs and help encourage kids to continue reading all summer!
Our summer reading clubs are smaller, so be sure to
sign up early.
Please also join our
July 14th Facebook event so your friends will see that you're attending and you can invite them to join you!
