Reading is the gateway to experience new worlds. As an educator, I've always been a strong advocate for literacy. I recently collaborated with Robens Chery, president of Principle Life Family Resource Center. We've joined forces with New Worlds Reading Initiative as regional partners to host multiple literacy events throughout South Florida for the next seven months. We're excited to invite you to our first occasion designed for students in grades VPK-5. This experience promises to be a wonderful opportunity for families to come together, celebrate the joy of reading, and ignite the imaginations of young minds.
Join us on Saturday, November 18, 2023, at the Lauderdale Lakes Middle School Media Center for an unforgettable literary adventure.
Date: Saturday, November 18th, 2023
Time: Session one: 10:30 am - 11:30 am ; Session two- 12:00 pm- 1:00 pm
Location: Lauderdale Lakes Middle School Media Center 3911 NW 30th Ave, Lauderdale Lakes, FL 33309

We have an array of exciting activities and goodies in store for you and your family. Here's a glimpse of what to expect:
1. Interactive Literacy Activities:
Immerse your child in the enchanting world of books with a variety of interactive literacy activities. From storytelling sessions to book-related crafts, your child will have the chance to explore new ideas and stories while having a blast.

No event is complete without delicious treats! Enjoy free refreshments to keep your energy up as you dive into the world of books. We want to ensure that your family has a memorable and enjoyable time.
3. Free Books to Take Home:
Every young reader needs a collection of books to call their own. At our event, each child will receive free books to take home. These books are not only a treasure trove of knowledge but also an invitation to embark on countless adventures through the power of words. At the event, parents will get the opportunity to register each of their children for the program to receive FREE books delivered to their homes every month through fifth grade. They'll have the option to select books in English, Haitian-Creole, Spanish, or Braille.
