Review for Rolling Readers Space Coast, Melbourne, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization offers volunteers a real chance to work inside local public school classrooms and help make a difference for our low-income, at-risk elementary students. For 30 minutes each week, I read aloud stories, encourage children to improve their reading skills and help them discover the joy of books. It is as if we have our own “book club” and the goal is to get them to want to read!

Reading literacy is the foundation for all education. Even the Supreme Court weighed in on the importance of reading by stating that “...Illiteracy is an enduring disability, the inability to read and write will handicap the individual deprived of a basic education each and every day of his life.”

I can’t think of a better use of my time then to reach out and offer support to our community children. What can be more rewarding? Rolling Readers has made that possible for me for 18 years, and they make that possible every year for hundreds of other volunteers as well.

Review for Rolling Readers Space Coast, Melbourne, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Walking into a classroom of young elementary children and spending 30 minutes with them reading aloud books starts my morning off with a smile. With each book, we explore new ideas, learn new words, discover new facts and best of all, together we share the experience of reading a book. Through Rolling Readers, I have been able to bring my love of reading to children and most importantly, encourage each child to make reading a part of their life.
