Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Thank you to everyone who signed up for the August Reading Clubs. We are currently full; however, if you are still interested in volunteering at the August Reading Clubs, please check back on our website for openings due to cancellations.

If you have signed up for the August Reading Clubs but learn you will not be able to attend, please do cancel so that someone else may take your place.



Los Angeles Elementary School has been invited to be a part of the Grand Parade at the 70th Annual Nisei Week Japanese Festival in Little Tokyo on Sunday, August 15th. The Grand Parade boasts the only Nebuta float, a beautifully crafted float made out of wood and paper and illuminated from the inside, outside of Japan. The students, teachers, and staff at Los Angeles have invited Reading to Kids volunteers to join them in the honor of walking in the parade.

Inspired by the Leo Lionni classic Swimmy (a Reading to Kids book selection in 2003), the Los Angeles Elementary Drill Team will walk in the parade with Swimmy the Fish lanterns. We are looking for about 12 volunteers to help out at this event -- holding the lanterns briefly if a child's arms get tired. In particular we are looking for a couple of TALL folks to help with the front of the drill team.

For more information and to sign up, please email Kitty Sankey at kitty_sankey@hotmail.com.



If you are interested in working at Reading to Kids, or you know someone who might be interested in applying for the open Program Director position, please click here to review our job posting. Application instructions can be found on that page.


Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you in August!
