Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

The kids are eagerly waiting for you read to them at our March 12th "Music & Celebrations" reading clubs. We still need 297 volunteers, so sign up today.

Please also help recruit more volunteers by joining our March 12th Facebook event. You can then invite your Facebook friends to the celebration, too.

As we do every March, we will have wonderful musicians performing. Click here to find out who will be performing at your school!
