Children’s Author Matthew Gollub Visits Growing Minds

Matt Gollub Children's Author

Children’s Author Matthew Gollub, author of Jazz Fly, Ten Oni Drummers, and Cool Melons-Turn to Frogs visited Growing Minds Center for Children & Families in Escondido to read and perform for preschool-aged children this month. As part of our Ready, Set, Read! program we sponsor children’s authors to come and read to children to help instill a love of reading and learning. Matthew performed by singing, playing the bongos and telling stories to the children and their families both in English and in Spanish! What a treat!

As part of Ready, Set, Read! our volunteers read to elementary school-aged children one on one to help them improve their reading skills. If you’re interested in volunteering for this program or any of our other programs visit our Volunteer page information here.
