Wild About Reading will be held at sixteen parks in communities throughout the United Way of Southwest Minnesota (UWSWMN) service area this summer. This year’s theme is “Move Your Body, Stretch Your Mind, We Love Reading All the Time!” This program opportunity encourages reading and supplements the Imagination Library and 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten early literacy programs which are locally sponsored by UWSWMN. Following is the full schedule for the summer!
Parents, caregivers and childcare providers are encouraged to bring their preschool or young children to the park nearest to them and enjoy the fun. The program will feature activities and reading by United Way Success By 6 volunteers. Childcare providers who attend with the children in their care will receive a bag of books for their daycare. Other children in attendance will also receive a free book.
