Weekly News Update

Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Nine more days to sign up for our August 11th Reading Clubs. Sign up and invite a friend or colleague to join you!

Our August theme is Feelings and Emotions, featuring books that help kids to better understand and express how they feel. Read about Bean the bunny and her love for her blanket in I'm Big Enough, sympathize with Ada Ruth's experiences during WWII as she waits for her mother to find work and return home to her in Coming on Home Soon, or learn how 11 year old Ellie Dingman copes with her mother's inability to be a good parent in Here Today. Click here to sign-up!
