Raising a Reader fuels family literacy at BBK’s Family Enrichment Night
As part of an ongoing commitment to family literacy, BBK has been exploring opportunities to integrate literacy development into our family engagement activities. Toward this end, Raising a Reader (RAR) was featured as the guest host for this month’s Family Enrichment Night (FEN). Over thirty parents and children attended the event last night, which featured a bilingual reader’s theater with RAR’s hallmark Red Bag, craft stations for families to create reading buddies, and books which children then took home.
One parent shared this sentiment via written survey at the conclusion of last night’s FEN: “I think reading with our children is extremely important because it develops relationships, language and it opens their imagination to a new world.”
We’re thrilled to partner with RAR in creating additional literacy development opportunities within BBK’s parent education and family engagement programming. Stay tuned for more great stories!
