Read to Me Project Experience Art Stories

Wow. It’s the end of May… almost June and we are coming to the end of another school year with all of our wonderful kids. In one of our recent encounters with the children at La Gloria Elementary School in Gonzales, we asked our volunteer 4th-6th-grade readers to draw the experience they’ve had helping their pre-k brothers and sisters get ready for kindergarten. It’s always refreshing to see through children’s eyes. These are just a few of the masterpieces we received. You can click on the images to see a larger version.
