Reading Rules at Storytime LIVE!

Families across the nation have been hobnobbing with beloved PBS Kids characters Curious George and Pinkalicious at this summer’s Kiddie Academy Storytime LIVE! events.

This free community event is a great way for children and parents to enjoy a story together, meet the characters and experience the fun at their community’s Kiddie Academy location.

In addition to the reading fun, each event features lots of other entertaining activities and healthy snacks for the entire family.

Storytime LIVE! also underscores our commitment to making literacy fun for children. Studies show that children who are read to develop stronger language and reading skills and are better prepared for school. And when the book characters come to life, as they do at this event, children love it!

There are plenty of Storytime LIVE! events still to come this summer. You can find a participating Academy in your area for events scheduled in late August and in September.

This video shows the fun and festivities from one of last year’s events.
