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

Rating: 5 stars  

My first grade kids that I read to LOVE having a story read to them...I work closely with the teachers to make sure I can read books that are relevant to what the kids are learning and the stories be age appropriate....If I can, I try to do "show and tell" with items that I have collected in my travels around the world. My dad read to me every night while I was growing up...and a lot of children do not have that in their lives in our present world for many reasons...I know that the kids really enjoy the books that I read to them and so do the teachers...It gives the teachers a break too and since I LOVE to READ ..I`m hoping the kids will feel the same way !!!

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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Glory of the written word.....How can one describe the beauty of snow-capped mountains, the rush of ocean waves upon the shore, the vast yellowish-brown expanse of the desert, ,the majesty of stately elk in a forest....I am so glad that my dad, despite never finishing grade school, was an avid reader. He had a tall bookcase in the attic of our home which I devoured as I got old enough to read better. He also read "Fairy stories" to me at night which he had gotten from the library, .,,and instilled in me an unquenchable thirst for reading. I am now retired and read to first grade chjldren through the Rolling Readers program in Brevard County Florida...Always striving to instill that thirst for Reading !!!
