"She is fantastic. She brings every story to life. The children just love her storytelling...The staff loves her as well."
"Our reader is amazing. She ranks as one of the top five activities for students and teachers. We love her stories, songs, enthusiasm, and calm. Thank you for bringing her into our lives!"
"He is an excellent storyteller. The children, staff, and parents love him. He is unique in his own way."
These are just some of the reactions we received from the teachers of the preschool classes that our Books for Wider Horizons (BWH) volunteers read to this past school year. These 67 BWH volunteers are changing the lives of Oakland children, one week at a time.
If you want to be a hero in a child's life and are interested in volunteering for BWH, please call our coordinator, Rochelle Venuto, at (510) 238-7453. She will be happy to sign you up.
