“D” had been the Reading Buddy for “Little K” for two years. At first she didn’t care much for reading. . . or so D thought. But one day she realized that reading was doing more for Little K than just entertaining her and positioning grammar . . . it was awakening her mind! She was becoming a writer!
Story after story flowed from the pen of Little K. Via her imagination she traveled across the continents, even spending Christmas in Africa!
The world was pretty small for Little K but with the help of words and a Reading/Writing Buddy – the horizons became limitless.
On the last day of school this year D asked her writing friend, “Are you ready for school to be out?”
Little K’s answer surprised her, “No – – I’d like one more week – – with all Tuesdays in it.”
It took D a minute to figure out that answer…
Tuesdays are Reading Buddy day.
And the world changes for the better – one volunteer at a time.
