Swing Into Stories

The Early Literacy Mobile (ELM) is going to play at the park! Movement and play are an important part of growing into a reader. So we’re partnering with the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department to bring reading and stories to where young children are movin’ and groovin’ outside. That’s the park, of course.

Come to the playground and hit the swings with a good book
or take some books home to cuddle up with later.
