Kiddie Academy® of Birmingham Hosts Storytime LIVE!
Local Educational Child Care Provider Invites Families to Free Reading Event Featuring Special Appearances by Pinkalicious® and Curious George
Birmingham, AL (September 7, 2018)—This summer, Kiddie Academy®, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive educational child care programs, invites children and their parents to get excited about reading and enjoy its free Storytime LIVE! community event to celebrate the grand opening in Birmingham. Over the years, Curious George has delighted communities at hundreds of events all across the U.S., and this year, Kiddie Academy is thrilled to announce that Pinkalicious®, the whimsical and effervescent storybook character known for all things pink, will be joining Curious George. The Storytime LIVE! event will be held on September 15th from 10 a.m. to noon at Kiddie Academy of Birmingham, located at 5412 US Highway 280.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate with the members of the Birmingham community,” said Rachel McGuire, Director of Kiddie Academy of Birmingham. “Storytime LIVE! is the perfect way to celebrate what Kiddie Academy does, as it provides families with a special bonding experience that ultimately prepares children for reading in the classroom and encourages children to participate in activities to help them grow.”
Research shows that reading aloud to young children posits 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. 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.
Attendees will have the chance to meet Curious George and Pinkalicious® as they come to life during book readings. The event will also feature a bounce house, refreshments and food trucks. To reserve your spot to attend, please visit kiddieacademy.com/academies/birmingham.
