The objective of this program is to give free books in Spanish to Latino children ages from birth to 8 years old.
Every child registered in this program will receive free books appropriate for their age. It has been proven that if children have books at home, play with books when they are little and have parents and grand parents actively read with them every day, they will develop a love for books and love of reading. Learning how to read, write and do basic math at an early age will help them be successful in school and in life.
This program also gives free books to parents and grand parents. It has been proven that children imitate behavior. If they see their parents and grand parents reading they will try to do the same.
In 2017 at our Children’s Festival we gave two age appropriate books to each of the 657 children who attended, and one book to their moms.
We all know that Children learn through playing, singing, dancing, listening to storytelling. At our Children’s Festival we give them a day full of these educational activities too.
