Are you looking to help instill the love of reading in your child? The Laura Bush Literacy Program and the George W. Bush Childhood Home are having a reading event on Thursday. Paul St. Hilaire, the home's executive director, explains.
The goal of the Laura Bush Literacy Program is to foster a love for reading in young children. Reading events are scheduled once each month for different age groups.
Thursday, December 16, 2010, from 4-5 PM, the George W. Bush Childhood Home will be holding a reading event for children in 1st-6th grades in the Visitor Center.
