Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Even though this was a three-day weekend and one of our schools was closed, this past Saturday 708 kids, 360 volunteers,
104 parents, and 22 teachers & staff
joined together for our Jan. 13th reading clubs!
The Authors Read With Us!
On Saturday we were also delighted and proud to have Salvo Lavis
and James Munn
, the authors of Once Upon a Weasel
, read-aloud with us their 1st grade book!
They joined us at Esperanza to read to the kids there, and above you can see one of the delightful crafts they created with the kids. Check out their website
for more info. and eventually other photos from the morning!
