Looking for new ways to participate in Summer Reading with the Free Library of Philadelphia? We’ve got brand new activity ideas for all age groups:
An online parent engagement tool, ReadyRosie develops English and Spanish videos to promote early childhood learning inside the home, at the supermarket, or even on the go. Video subjects range from practicing facial movements with babies to learning about directions with toddlers. Every video is designed with families in mind and serves as a great resource for parents hoping to actively participate in their kids’ pre-K education.
