Preschoolers Read With Volunteers

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

It was a day full of fun and reading for preschoolers at Billings Headstart on Thursday.

Volunteers from the Golden K Kiwanis group, brought over 260 books to read to the children.

Students were able to pick out their favorite book to read with a Kiwanis member, and then take that book home.

The program has been in place for over a decade; something organizers say is a key part in a child's development.

"It's nationally known that children who are read to, do better socially. They do better academically and over all, more children that are reading at a younger age, excel more when they are in grade school," says Headstart Volunteer Co-coordinator, Tera DeBolt.

The Kiwanis volunteers spent the entire day reading to the Headstart students, starting bright and early at 9 A.M.
