Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Thank you to the 1,187 children, 546 volunteers, 162 parents, and 46 school administrators
and teachers for attending the November Reading Clubs! It was a fantastic Saturday, and we couldn't have done it without you!
Los Angeles may not get a lot of snow on the ground, but there will be plenty of it at the
December 12th "Winter Wonderlands" Reading Clubs! 3rd Graders will hear
The Story of Snow and 5th Graders will enjoy the story
of The Snow Spider. The Kindergartners will see mountains
of snow as the volunteers take them on a "picture walk" through
A Penguin Story...brr!
Don't forget to bundle up, and
SIGN UP, for the December "Winter Wonderlands" Reading Clubs! We look forward to seeing you there!
