About this event

Boogie Down Storytime is a family-friendly experience at the Randall's Island Urban Farm (www.randallsisland.org, @randallsisland) that cultivates early literacy awareness through joyful reading experiences. Each storytime is led by Bronx yoga teacher Jazy Cintron, generally lasts 45-60 minutes, and includes:

  • Interactive read-aloud by an author, illustrator, or team member
  • Q&A so young readers can engage directly with the reader
  • Routines like mindful breathing that build social-emotional skills
  • Welcome shoutouts to honor each individual child in our community
  • Movement inspired by the book
