Kappa Delta Pi, the International Honor Society for Education at Middlesex County College, is hosting Literacy Alive!, a program for 5-10 year olds and their parents to encourage a love of reading. This free program includes a workshop by Steve Light, author of numerous children’s books such as “Have You Seen My Dragon?,” “Lucky Lazlo,” and “Zephyr Takes Flight.”
It will be held in the Performing Arts Center at Middlesex County College on Saturday, March 25, from 9 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and is followed by lunch.
*The event is open to the first 100 children ages 5-10 and one parent, so reserve your tickets now! Please RSVP using your child's name. Each ticket is the equivalent of one child only. We are not counting parents. *
The children and their parents will attend three workshops during the morning: one by Mr. Light; a literacy session conducted by MCC students in the honor society; and a crafts program in which the children will make a project to take home. The workshops are designed to encourage reading, and also to assist parents teach literary skills to their kids.
Each child will also receive a copy of an autographed book by Mr. Light.
