I’m sharing this blog post from http://www.kidsneedtoread.org because their “Reading Buddies” program is such a great cause. I can’t wait to get started crocheting little buddies for this project. They provide “buddies” to kindergarteners so they’ll have someone to read aloud to. Studies show that this helps increase reading proficiency levels. They need 2,000 buddies for their fall program. If you knit or crochet and would like to help with this project, send me a message.
