Reading Can Be Fun...
Kids Time provides a wonderful opportunity for volunteers to help build the vocabulary of children coming to BBHH. Recently a mom and her 3 children read to boys and girls while their moms were in Exercise Class. You could tell by just peeking into the room everyone was having fun listening to the story whether they understood all the words or not.
A 4-year old in West Dallas knows between 1500 and 2000 words. A 4-year old in more affluent areas knows between 5000 and 7000 words. Reading to a child is an easy way to change the life of a child simply because someone took the time to read to them. That mom and her family - they have already registered to volunteer on a regular basis. We praise God for volunteers of all ages who give of their time to help level the playing field for West Dallas children.
Donation of children's books are always appreciated.
To God be the Glory,
Great Things He Has Done...
