Operation Early Reading at Anne M. Jeans in Willowbrook

Wow-another successful day! Thank you again to all of you wonderful volunteers. So many of you volunteered for a second time, filled in at the last minute, and took time out of your very busy day to be there.  I really enjoyed meeting those of whom I hadn't met before. I think the kids loved spending time with you and really liked getting a book of their very own.  Thank you so much for making Operation Early Reading possible!

As an elementary teacher for 36 years, I understand the importance of Early Literacy and helping children gain confidence in their reading skills. It is very exciting to be part of an organization that values Literacy Development.
Operation Early Reading is truly a gift to these young children and not only because they receive a book to take home, but more importantly the way the Assistance League members make them feel unique and important.

As a former teacher, it was exciting to be a part of this meaningful program. The children seemed delighted with a book they could call their own. The activities to follow gave members a chance to visit with the children and learn more about their reactions to the story. Operation Early Reading program is very well organized.
My daughter Diana Brann volunteered. Her first graders loved having a book with more then one story. They also felt that they had made some new friends.
