Volunteer to read to kids this Saturday!

Reading to Kids organizes monthly reading clubs on the second Saturday of every month at eight downtown Los Angeles elementary schools (
http://readingtokids.org/ReadingClubs/RCSchools.php). The reading clubs run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pairs of volunteer readers read aloud to small groups of students and organize a craft project based on the book.

Our next reading clubs are this Saturday, May 10th. The reading clubs will feature a "Family and Culture" theme - click here to see our books and craft suggestions!

Please visit
www.readingtokids.org to sign up.
