Let A Celebrity Read To Your Child Today

 Let A Celebrity Read To Your Child Today

In an earlier post, I wrote about the importance of reading to your children for 20 minutes every day. Today, KinderCare  is hosting celebrity readings today across the country to promote the development of early literacy in children. Cities include: Houston, Dallas, Denver, Philadelphia, Kansas, Washington DC and Minneapolis.

In addition to the reading, parents are invited to visit and talk with KinderCare teachers, get tips on reading with their children, and take home a list of recommended books for their child’s age group.

Here is a list by citry of the KinderCare Learning Centers that will host the Reading Night. Visit www.KinderCare.com to find locations of more participating centers in your area.
