Volunteer to read stories to children of all ages - they love it!  Classroom teachers all across this nation are looking for parents to come into a classroom and read a story to the students.  Even at the middle school level, kids LOVE to hear a story.  The easiest place to read to a child is in your home.  This builds a relationship with a child, increases their vocabulary and also helps them to understand how to read in terms of inflection and emphasis of syllables.
