Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We're looking for another 178 readers to join the book party and sign up here for our March 10th "Music & Celebrations" reading clubs!

Spread the word by also joining our March 10th Facebook event to invite your friends to the celebration, too.

Talented musicians will be sharing the gift of music with students at each of our eight schools. Click here to find out who will be performing at your school!
