Kiddie Academy® Celebrates Eighth Annual Storytime LIVE! Event with Pinkalicious® and Curious George

July 11, 2018

Posted in: Family, Kids, News & Events, Summer

This summer, we are thrilled to invite children and parents to get excited about reading with our free, eighth annual Storytime LIVE! community event. Over the years, Curious George has delighted communities at hundreds of events all across the U.S., and this year, Pinkalicious®, the whimsical and effervescent storybook character known for all things pink, will be joining Curious George at dozens of events across the country.

Over 150 participating Kiddie Academy locations will host Storytime LIVE! at 10 a.m. on one of four upcoming Saturdays: July 14, August 4, August 25 and September 15. During each event, attendees will enjoy a story reading and classroom visit with Curious George and/or Pinkalicious® for a truly memorable experience for children. Appearances vary by location, and all events are free and open to the public.

Reading with children is the best way to enliven their imagination, share new ideas and spark creativity. We created Storytime LIVE! nearly a decade ago to provide families with a special bonding experience that ultimately prepares children for reading in the classroom.

Storytime LIVE! combines learning and fun—both key ingredients to Kiddie Academy’s Life Essentials® curriculum—for an engaging experience for adults and children alike.

Research shows that reading aloud to young children offers a multitude of benefits, from boosting vocabulary and stimulating speech, to lessening behavior problems. Plus, students who are exposed to reading before preschool are more likely to do well in all facets of formal education. It also builds motivation, curiosity and memory, and helps children cope with stress.

Participating locations will provide light refreshments and educational activities for children and families. To find a participating Academy and to register, families should visit www.kastorytime.com.

Thank you for reading along, as we work together in raising the next generation of amazing kids!
