VOLUNTEERS ARE THE HEART, SOUL, AND HANDS OF TRAVELING STORIES
When you volunteer to read with children at Traveling Stories, you’re making a difference in a child’s life, which is why we truly consider our volunteers heroes. Join Traveling Stories: come volunteer to read with a low-income child at a StoryTent near you and become a hero.
Children who are “well-read-to” (at least five times a week), when asked to tell a story, used more literary language than unread to children, and they used more sophisticated syntactic forms, longer phrases, and relative clauses. They were also better able to understand the oral and written language of others – an important foundation for the comprehension skills that will develop in the coming years.
