Pledge ~ Read ~ Share.
She is hoping to encourage reading aloud between children and parents for 20 minutes per session. You can complete the pledge and start or commit to continuing a routine with your child today!
Many attended her kickoff at Glasgow Park (pavilion 1, by the playground) on Saturday, 9/14 from 10am to 12pm. She had three Paws for People pet teams available for children to read to, a reading craft, free bookmark, bring & take a book (or just take), "Minute Buddy" rescue certificate and resources highlighting the importance of reading aloud.
Another part of her project was to build a "Free Little Library" for others to enjoy and take advantage of. Visit the location of her new "Free Little Library" in Middletown near Main Street at 215 N. Cass Street,
