Path to Reading

Path to Reading

Thank you to all our friends that visited our first Path to Reading opportunity at Community Park. We enjoyed hearing the positive feedback and fun photos of families enjoying not only the Rainbow Fish story, but also all the park’s amenities. 

The second in our series of children’s books will be installed at Island Prairie Park, the home of our Community Center, located at 7540 W. Braemar Lane on or before Monday, September 19.

As you walk the path at this park site, you will see pages from Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See, a story that teaches young children to associate colors and meaning to objects. The final page of the book will direct readers to the next Path to Reading site.

We hope you enjoy visiting Island Prairie Park and all it has to offer and be sure to keep an eye out for the pair of bald eagles that frequent this park site.
