Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens is partnering with The Mandel Public Library to provide a unique and inspiring outdoor Storytime for families with children ages 2-6. Mandel Public Library Children’s Librarians will read books to children in this beautiful, tropical garden and do an arts and crafts project. Guests can take a tour of the garden and experience the monumental garden sculptures and two-acre tropical garden sanctuary. Reservations required and space is limited. Please call the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens 832-5328 to reserve your place.
Here are a few things to do at home during National Family Literacy Month:
• Set aside a little time for reading every day, even if it is only 15 or so minutes. Even if your child is a baby, just looking at pictures and hearing your voice can have a profound effect on your child’s learning later in life.
• Read the book version of your child’s favorite movie to them.
Remember, reading helps with vocabulary, writing skills, attention span, memory and teaches us about other times and places. Be a great example and read in our garden space. Let your children enjoy unusual garden reading nooks, designed just for them!
