Jennifer Garner Reads to Kentucky Kids for 'Idol Gives Back'
Jennifer Garner reads There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell to a little girl at LBJ Elementary in Jackson, Kentucky.
The 38-year-old actress took part in Save The Children‘s Early Steps to School Success program, which helps kids get ready for school by making sure they have strong reading skills.
Jen‘s visit to Breathitt, Kentucky – near her hometown – was televised as part of American Idol‘s “Idol Gives Back” special yesterday (April 22).
“Four-year-olds who grow up in poverty are 18 months behind children who grow up in even lower-middle-class communities,” Jen said. “It’s not fair.”
