Storytime and Free Books for Kids Every Month at The United Way of Muskegon November 27th

  We're going to hit you with a couple of facts right off the bat.  1) It's a proven fact that kids that can read before they enter school will have a much better academic career than those who can't.  2) There are already over 4000 kids in the Muskegon Area who participate in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program where a brand new book is sent directly to them every month from birth till they are 5.  The excitement of getting something in the mail alone for your kid should keep ya reading.

  On November 27th you and your youngsters are invited to the United Way of the Lakeshore for a fun event highlighting the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program that happens through the United Way.  There will be plenty of stories read to kids from some of the best readers in town all of which are on hand to show kids just how much fun reading can be,  Unlock the imagination a little and get those young eyes and minds on something other than video screens for a while.  Not only will they be able to hear some incredible stories read, parents and community members can get those kids signed up to be part of the magic monthly when the new books start showing up in the mailbox.  It's also a great way to learn a little more about the essential needs of developing reading early.

  The event goes from 10:30a-1:30p at the United Way in Muskegon on November 27th and if you're north of town, they will be in Pentwater at the Storybook Village from 4p-6p.  Expert readers will be on hand to add the sizzle to the story with their narration and all the stops have been pulled out to welcome in one of the busiest people on the planet this time of the year.  Yes, Santa himself will be the last story reader in Muskegon and then there will be some candy canes handed out for the kids who came to enjoy the program.

  Dominique Bunker of The United Way of the Lakeshore joined me to talk about the event and the fun surrounding it.  Take a listen to our chat below.

  Hey, if nothing else, think of it as a sneak Christmas gift for your kids!!  They won't even know what hit 'em.  You're giving them a book a month and a visit with Santa all while you're setting the tone for the rest of their lives by encouraging them to read!!  Pretty amazing how it all works huh?  The 27th is Giving Tuesday, so, give a gift they will use their entire life...a love of reading.  Our thanks to The United Way of the Lakeshore for all they do and for inspiring young readers everywhere.  If you'd like to know more about the United Way here in town, click on the image below to visit their page.
