Lanora Nash Steinbacher volunteers during circle and center time at Carousel Children’s Center in Delhi, NY. Carousel is a program of The Arc of Delaware County that provides services and programs for children with identified delays or disabilities. Lanora shared that she recently started volunteering at CCS “Because I want to help people with disabilities and help in the community. I was born to help people”. For the past 3 months she has been reading to the children, learning tips and tricks that hold their attention and engage them in the story. This week, she read a story about animals “In a Tree” that fit in nicely with the current weekly theme of forest animals. The children delighted in the sounds she would make of the animals in the story “who-whooing “along with her when she turned the page to the owl, or buzzing when they saw a picture of a hornet nest in a tree.
