This was my first year participating as a storyteller in the Read to Me Early Literacy Storyteller event.  It was such an amazing experience to meet the children, see their class room and meet their teacher.

At first I was rather nervous, but once I started to read and had the children help me with the various animal noises in the story, I completely forgot about my nerves. After we finished our story, a student from the class read a beautiful poem to me and her class about reading. She mentioned no matter what, she will always read, every day in order to succeed. A kindergartner read this poem without stumbling on a word!

The power of this program was clear today and can only have more of an impact with more volunteers. The future if these children depend on this program!!
