Children who have entered grade school start their own journeys towards being readers, but they still love listening to stories! This program is designed to support your emergent reader by sharing a sample of stories & series that are geared toward various levels of early readers, & get them excited to use their new reading skills on the sequels later! Stories are followed by a craft, and we finish up the 60 minute session with a snack!
Registration required; please note that when you register, you are signing up for the six-week session. Please ckick below to register.
