Every year, from October through April, hundreds of volunteers spend one day a week reading with a child at local elementary schools in Middlebury. Salisbury and Bridport and Shoreham. During lunchtime, they explore books and literacy activities and help the child build strong self-esteem, reading skills and a lifelong love of books.
A current reading mentor reports that her reading buddy "is a ray of sunshine! He comes in smiling - full of energy and enthusiasm. He has a good sense of humor and makes me laugh. One day he told me, 'I could hardly wait for this day!' He surely made mine."
