Free Summer Story Hour and Arts & Crafts on July 12
Malden Reads and Raising a Reader MA present the third annual program for children ages zero to five and their parents. The program includes storytime and an arts & crafts activity, and will be held at the Beebe School (401 Pleasant St. in Malden) on Thursday, July 12, from 11:00 a.m. until noon. The event is free of charge.
This program promotes literacy experiences for young children and families. Books will be given to each child so that families can build a personal library and continue reading the books at home. The Malden Reads companion books for emerging readers will be used to encourage children’s listening skills, and then children will create arts & crafts based on the themes of the books.
The 2018 Malden Reads companion books for young children that will be used in the program are as follows: “The Colors of Us” by Karen Katz, “Blue Sky White Stars” by Sarvinder Naberhaus and “Little Blue and Little Yellow” by Leo Lionni.
