Child to Child Book Buddies

1234 10 ave, Calgary, AB, T2T 1G9 [map]
2-4 hours / daily
Ongoing
Schools often have children in older grades read stories or listen to stories of children in younger grades . If your children are in older grades help them reach out to families with smaller children to have online Book Buddies. Set a specific time of day, and time limit for the event. Have each child read a book to the other via Skype, Zoom, FB video messenger, or Facetime. Allow enough time for a short visit, and repeat regularly.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
This is a great way to keep kids busy, have something to look forward to, build relationships, and help another in their community thrive. It is both a service and leadership opportunity for willing older children.
