Make a Child Smile Through Reading

Various Days and Times Monday October 23rd - Friday October 27th

At Pajama Program, we believe that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has the right to a loving good night. Since we can't be with every child at bedtime, Pajama Program Reading Centers are how we reach more children- giving us additional opportunities to show unconditional love and help children feel appreciated, supported, and cared for. Our Reading Parties begin with circle time introductions and then we begin reading in pairs (1 child to 1 adult) or small groups. During the Reading Party, the children receive a snack, a new book of their choice, and a new pair of pajamas.
