Free fun storytime series in the perfect setting!
I love reading to my kids. And they love it, too! There’s a real sense of pride and wonderment that comes from your little children actually reading to you.
We know the benefits of reading.
So, we soak up storytime whenever we can. We are looking forward to checking out a pretty sweet one from EPIC. (Every Person Influences Children)
EPIC’s Family Storytime Literacy program is for families (parents and children) focused on developing literacy skills, incorporating lessons based on universally accepted teaching methods into a number of themed interactive experiences.
Keep in mind – this is fun – and so much more.
EPIC hope the kids have fun at this summer series but they also hope to encourage:
1. Reading throughout the summer – avoiding that “summer slide.” Our kids are in school for 9 months and all of a sudden it comes to a grinding halt. We need to keep the momentum going, especially, for the younger ones.
2. Reading together as a family – children whose parents read with them, and are involved in their education, are more likely to have a successful academic career.
3. And reading is FUN!
Special thanks to M & T Bank for sponsoring the series.
