Literacy Activities, Prizes and ‘Curious George’ Highlight 2012 Somerville Early Childhood Literacy Fair
Somerville early education and care schools, programs and providers and other local community agencies will participate in the 2012 Early Childhood Literacy Fair on Saturday, November 17, from 10am to noon at the Arthur D. Healey School.
This FREE event offers Somerville families information about the numerous resources available to families with young children in Somerville. Families are invited to join the festivities, explore books with their children, partake in a variety of family literacy activities, and meet other parents and friends in the neighborhood.
Children aged birth to six years old can enjoy a multitude of fun activities presented by early education providers and community agencies. Activities will include arts and crafts, reading activities, ‘Make a Book,’ and even a chance to meet some animals from the New England Zoo and the New England Aquarium. The Boston Children’s Museum and the Museum of Science will also be offering plenty of fun activities for everyone.
Other event highlights include a free children’s book for your family, free raffle prizes, the opportunity to exchange a gently used children’s or parenting book for another during the Book Swap (don’t forget to bring a gently-used book with you to participate in the Book Swap), and take your child’s photo taken with Curious George!
