Weekly Update
September 3, 2009

Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

"The Fantasy, Folklore, and Fairy Tales" Reading Clubs are not to be missed. We still need 165 more volunteers, so be sure to sign up today!

And don't forget to check out this month's craft ideas created just for you by the Curriculum Committee. The kids always love to get creative after reading a good book, and this month is no exception. We will be concocting pumpkin pie recipes, creating colorful birds, and making our very own magical wands!
