...awesome! Our Little Free Library looked adorable, the kids had a blast and the parents seemed thrilled with this wonderful addition to Kate Jackson Park.
Since I live in the neighborhood I often pass the park on my morning walks. Each morning since the event, I have walked by and noticed more than one child at a time enthusiastically peeking in and pulling books out of the library. This warms my heart
As a Preschool Reading Specialist, I want to be able bring excitement and delight to reading… and I think I have done just that with our donation of the Little Free Library!
I would like to send a big THANK YOU to the South Tampa Barnes & Noble, the Early Learning Coalition of Hillsborough County, and John F. Germany Public Library for their generous donation of books! Being able to fill our library with brand new books only made the experience that much better!
Couldn’t make it to the event? When you do have a chance to stop by, let us know about your visit by snapping a picture in front of the library while holding your book and then post to social media with the hashtags: #preschoolreaders #littlefreelibrary. Also, @preschoolreaders on Instagram. And be sure to stay connected with us through Facebook and Instagram for news about future Preschool Readers Little Free Library events (like monthly story time at the park)!
Since you now have new books to read with your little ones I wanted to share some Preschool Readers Blog posts that will come in handy during story time! Check them out:
Not in the Tampa area? Check out our Literacy Book Bags! They incorporate many pre-reading skills in an exciting way… and the kids LOVE them (watch this adorable video). We also ship anywhere!
