Record Children's Books on Tape

Want to express your dramatic voice and promote children's literacy?

We're recruiting volunteers to record children's picture books on tape. Each book and tape are shelved in the Book Bank and available for teachers -- free of charge -- for their classrooms. Volunteers are welcome to record these dramatic readings together! Children love hearing more than one voice on a tape as they follow along in the book.
