My DD is in pre school 3 half days a week. The teachers put out a sign up sheet for parent volunteers to read a story the last 15 min of class. They have 3 slots. I am the ONLY one who volunteered. I was the ONLY one who volunteered in December too. The teachers have to pratically beg to get others to do it. Parents hesitate, or say they are not good at reading, etc. They make odd excuses.
The children LOVE just hearing a story from another adult. It's so cool for that age group. I don't get why parents have no interest in reading to their child's class. I LOVE doing it. Would you sign up? If not, why?

I am one of the story moms for my son's kindergarten class. Maybe a lot of the moms work and can't get off to do the story time. Some moms may be good with their own children but can't handle a whole group of children. There are many reasons why a mom may or may not want to be story mom. That's a personally decision.
