2nd Annual Storyland: A Family Literacy Festival

PLEASE SEE OUR FLYERS IN ENGLISH, SPANISH (Mundo de Historietas: Un Festival de Literario Familiar), AND CHINESE (故事樂園:家庭讀寫日)!

***Note: this event is for Alameda County children entering pre-kindergarten (pre-K), transitional kindergarten (TK), and kindergarten (K) in the fall, and up to two accompanying adults.***

Research shows that high-quality early childhood education promotes pathways to success, from preschool to college and career. For this reason, we are hosting our second annual family literacy event!

Adults will:

  • Learn ready-to-use strategies to promote a love for reading and combat “summer slide” (when some skills learned during the year are forgotten)

  • Receive resources on how to access free books through local libraries and online

Early learners will:

  • Experience interactive read-alouds based on favorite stories--in English, Mandarin, and Spanish

  • Receive books, activities, and raffle prizes

Everyone will enjoy breakfast or lunch on us (depending on the session)!

Pre-registration is required. Limit 2 adults per child; choose between Session 1 or 2
