Review for Reading to Kids, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I really love the Reading to Kids Organization. This is a wonderful program that is currently in 9 'underserved' schools in the LA area. Volunteers read to kids in grades K-5, work on language skills, do a craft, and every single child goes home with a book. The timing is perfect and consistent, the 2nd Saturday of every month, and I appreciate that. They get hundreds of children to come in and, here's the secret, fulfill my life! I never cease to be amazed at the children, the volunteers and the experience. Truly, I would pay them for the opportunity just to be able to do this!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen children of all ages do amazing things--I watched a 4th grader grasp the concept of measuring the earths in degrees and saw her divide 1/2 to 1/4 to 1/8 to 1/16, etc in a heartbeat. Examples like this every week!
