One of the most precious moments I had this year was when one student was almost falling out of his seat with excitement while I was reading Mélanie Watt’s Chester. When I arrived the following week, this boy gave me a picture he drew of Chester. When I thanked him, he told me it wasn’t for me, but I was to give it to the author (I did my best!). How fulfilling it has been volunteering with , I get to make these wonderful connections with students and spread the joy of reading.

Volunteer of the month – December 2021

Daniel Savulescu

We are delighted to announce our volunteer of the month for December 2021: Daniel Savulescu! Here’s a message from him:

“For my first volunteering experience as a student, I eagerly accepted to join  because I find that it is never too early to introduce books into the life of a child. Giving toddlers the pleasure of being able to enjoy stories reminds me of the joy I felt when my parents read to me. Books have allowed me to stimulate my imagination and arouse my curiosity, to escape and to immerse myself in a world of fantasy. This has been such a rewarding experience which has allowed me to be not only a source of information for children’s literacy and to promote the love of reading but also a source of joy, pleasure, and comfort.”
