Kindergarten Mentors

Join us for this rewarding and fun experience!

Each of our community mentors meets with two to three kindergarten students a couple times  a month during the school year to share books. Finding a comfortable spot somewhere, mentors read aloud and discuss stories and experiences with their kindergarteners. These mentors serve as positive role models and show kids the joy and fun that books can provide.

Teacher Resources

Sites for teachers, with lesson plan ideas, templates, and other teaching resources.
