Stop to Read
February 29, 2008
On Dr. Seuss Day [also known as NEA’s Read Across America Day], we volunteer to read to children at one of the big malls. We ask parents to stop for a few minutes and allow us to read a book to their child. The children are given a ticket after listening to the reading and then allowed to pick a free book from our table of books. I’m not sure where or how the books are purchased, but I’m sure that something is worked out with one of the book companies. The reading is an awesome experience for me; it’s great to share my love for reading and to watch the children’s expressions as they listen.
