Family Reading Celebration Guides

Organizing a family reading celebration at your school or community center can be simple and fun! 

These guides contain everything you need to plan a successful event. They are designed to use picture books to excite children about math and science while encouraging families to create literacy and science rich home environments. Throughout the event, you will show parents ways to read, play, and talk with their children about math and science at home!
