Read and Romp – Tuscaloosa will be held Saturday, April 13 at Government Plaza from 9 am to noon. Children will engage in fun, learning-based activities themed around favorite children’s books. Kids will leave the event with goodies they have created from an activity at each station, along with a stamped passport and FREE books.
By associating fun-filled activities with reading, parents will learn ways to engage with their child on the life-long journey of learning at an early age. This level of engagement at a young age will help increase their children’s success in school. While centered on a book theme, each station is staffed by organizations and businesses that are child-focused, providing families an opportunity to learn about activities that will enhance the development and education of their young children. Families will also enjoy face painting, character visits, and free beverages.
Read and Romp is a FREE event organized by Alabama Project LAUNCH, Help Me Grow, Tuscaloosa Public Library, United Way of West Alabama and Alabama Public Television with help from our sponsors PNC Bank, Buffalo Rock and Read Bama Read, and the many local agencies who participate in this annual family literacy event .
