School Reading - Reading Is Fundamental Program

Just got back from reading my children's story, Petunia Wiggles, Giggles & Hops to a group of 2nd graders...who loved it! Is there anything better than seeing the enjoyment on kids faces after hearing a story? Nope, nothing better.

I was at the school as part of the Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) program. The vision & mission of the program is this:
OUR VISION:

Our vision is a literate America in which all children have access to books and discover the joys and value of reading.

OUR MISSION:
To motivate young children to read by working with them, their parents, and community members to make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life. RIF's highest priority is reaching underserved children from birth to age 8.
So as a volunteer today, I helped distribute free books to the kids and was able to read to them as well.

Great program. Great kids. And I was glad to be a part of it today.
