Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

This month we'll be "California Dreamin'" at our reading clubs. This new theme celebrates our great state with fun, fabulous, and fascinating stories about California and the people who live here. We have a few spots available, so RSVP now!   If you've signed up and you're unable to attend, please click here to cancel so that someone else may take your place.

Thirteen years ago Reading to Kids began with just 8 volunteers and 20 kids at Gratts Elementary. Since 1999 we've welcomed 13,557 volunteers and given 105,657 prize books to children who attend the reading clubs. It's been quite a journey, and thank you everyone who has come along for the ride!   Happy Birthday Reading to Kids!
