With all the emphasis on STEM education these days, I’m glad to see that some still understand the importance of reading. If we don’t get our kids to love to read, then learning science, tech, engineering, or math becomes even more difficult. But what makes me the most happy is to see professional athletes taking up a cause related to reading and education.
Join Kristi Yamaguchi and friends for Reading Adventures at the Happy Hollow Park & Zoo on Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Bring the entire family out to a fun-filled day highlighting the joy and importance of reading. The day will feature story reading by Kristi Yamaguchi, Brandi Chastain, Jennifer Fosberry, Lissa Kreisler, and Bruce Miller. There will also be live entertainment, art project stations, and all the fun of Happy Hollow.
All activities are free with regular admission. Tickets can be purchased at the gate or online.
