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

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.
