Dr. Seuss Celebration at Written Words Bookstore Shelton CT

 

Dr. Seuss Celebration at Written Words Bookstore Shelton CT

 

Read to your kids!I started reading to my son before he was even born. I would read articles and books aloud hoping somehow we were connecting. Did a lot of singing too, but that’s a whole other story. 

 

Then when he was born, I continued to read daily to him. I'd read him anything....the newspaper, recipes, and of course, lots of children's books.  Even before he could talk, I could tell he was understanding a lot of what I was reading. If I mentioned, turning out the light, he would point to the light when I read about it. If I read about someone going to sleep and closing his eyes, he would do the same. 

 

He could read the alphabet at 19 months, read some words at 2 and started reading himself when he was about 3.  He went into nursery school reading and spelling. I cannot tell you what an advantage he had over other children in his class and how that early reading helped him to be an ace writer and be recently admitted into a top notch college.

 

So anytime I can promote a local event that has to do with reading and encouraging our children to read more by instilling a desire to do so, I am right there.

 

In celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the National Education Association’s Read Across America program, Written Words Bookstore in Shelton CT will be hosting a free, festive reading-centric event on Saturday March 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

 

Families can come and enjoy story time every 30 minutes, face painting, photo ops with costumed characters, popcorn, and miscellaneous fun activities.

 

This year is the 75th anniversary of the first Dr. Seuss book, ‘And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street'.   All Dr. Seuss books at the March 3 event will be 15% off list price.

 

The reading event is free.  For more information, call 203-944-0400. 

 

Written Words Bookstore is located in the White Hills Shopping Center at 194 Leavenworth Road, Shelton CT.
