Kiddie Academy of Allen invites children and their families to a fun, free, interactive reading at the educational child care provider’s annual Storytime LIVE! event on Saturday, September 15th. Pinkalicious® and Curious George will jump off the page and make a live guest appearance at the Academy to meet attendees, young and old, up close and in person. Parents are encouraged to bring their cameras to capture the excitement.
The Storytime LIVE! event is free and open to everyone: current students; new friends who would like to learn more about Kiddie Academy; and anyone who would simply like to share a special experience with their child. Kiddie Academy of Allen will provide a bounce house, face painting, a balloon artist, light refreshments and educational activities for all in attendance.
Richard Peterson, vice president of education for Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care says, “Research shows that shared book reading is linked to young children’s emergent literacy ability and language development, which affect children’s later success in reading. Beyond these early literacy skills, though, is the pleasure of spending quality time together, sharing a favorite story or discovering new favorites, like Pinkalicious® and Curious George. We hope you’ll join us for this special event.”
