Event Description:
The Mary McLeod Bethune Foundation: National Historic Landmark is proud to be a part of the Books and Bears Reading program, whose goal is to promote literacy skills and life-long learning in young children by exposing them to fun and engaging reading activities, in partnership with the Swisher Library at Bethune-Cookman University.
Neighboring students in the local community between the ages 3-11 years are invited to attend the monthly Books and Bears under a selected theme in correspondence with the month. Faculty teaching in the School of Education and students majoring in Education participate in the development and implementation of the monthly activities. Also, healthy choice menu options are offered according to selected theme for that month.
At each level, the students are encouraged to read a wide variety of literature, work as a team and discover that reading can be a pleasurable life long experience. We are having our last Books and Bears for this school year and would love for your youth to join in.
