Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
September is coming soon and we still need over 300 volunteer readers for our September 8th Reading Clubs. Click here to sign yourself up, and make sure to invite a friend to join you!
This month's theme is "Fantasy, Folklore, and Fairy Tales" and our read aloud books include tales of lions, dragons, and best friends Frog & Toad. Click here for synopses, discussion questions, and craft ideas for this month's books.
We hope to see you in September!

READING TO KIDS MUSIC NIGHT -
Reading to Kids is planning a Music Night for this fall! The event is tentatively planned for Tuesday, November 6, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. We have two acts confirmed: The Four Postmen (www.fourpostmen.com), who did a fundraiser for us a few years back, and Henry Phillips (www.henryphillips.com), who performed at our Comedy Night this year.
We are working on getting other performers, but we need to pick a venue this week! In order to determine how big a venue to get, we need you to respond! Click here to respond to our Evite.
By RSVPing "Yes" now, you are guaranteeing yourself a ticket if you later choose to buy one (no commitment required). If you want to reserve the option of buying more than one ticket, please indicate that on Evite. We'll use this information to update our Music Night page: http://readingtokids.org/News/20071106_MusicNight.html.
We hope that this will be a really fun night. If it works well, it could become an annual tradition like our Comedy Night!
