    Dear All
    What a wonderful idea. This has been one of my ideas to tale up for y retirement plan. I love reading and have been reading to my children and nieces and nephews and they could all read before they started school. So I would like to start a progeamme called “Love to Read” and to raed aloud to the small children – for them to grow and love to read as well. Any guidance would be much appreciated.
    Warm regards
