One of my passions in life is youth literacy. I believe that when children learn to read and love books at an early age, they have a huge advantage in life. Because of this, I would like to do my part by helping kids see how fun reading can be and to encourage them to read every day.
I will be going to schools and community organizations to read to kids and share some of my favorite children's books. If you're a teacher or community organizer and want me to come read to your kids, you can email your request.
Peter H. Reynolds is an incredibly talented author/illustrator and I have many of his children's books including two of my favorites The Dot and Ish. Plant a Kiss is his latest and in this one, the only word that comes to mind when I saw it was magical! I mean come on, a book with glitter in it!
Well, this weekend there's a great opportunity for your child to meet Peter and actually draw with him. He is the co-owner of Blue Bunny Books and Toys and he'll be there on Friday for a very special event.
It's on Saturday, March 24th from 10am - noon at 577 High Street in Dedham. It's the 3rd annual Draw On Day, where kids can participate in a drop-in art studio. It's an all ages event and best of all...it's FREE! What a great opportunity and experience for your child.
