Reading Rainbow Fun Day | March 2

Join us on Saturday, March 2 from 10am to 1pm to have some Reading Rainbow FUN!!

The classic Reading Rainbow series, which launched in 1983 and was the most-watched PBS television show in the classroom, not only offers nostalgia but provides high-quality curriculum for children in Grades K-5 that is still relevant today.

We are inviting families for some fun watching 6 of the cherished books being read in the beloved book segments from the classic Reading Rainbow series. We will be showing the Reading Rainbow Stories from Bread is for Eating, Little Nino's Pizzeria, Math Curse, Mummies Made in Egypt, The Patchwork Quilt, and Rechenka's Eggs. We will have the original, accompanying make-and-take activities based on the featured books.

There will be a face painter, Reading Rainbow cookies, free giveaways, and the chance to win a gift package including the Reading Rainbow featured books.

Snacks will be provided.

Please note that a ticket is required for all family members ages 3 and up.
