Family Literacy Day 2012
On Saturday, January 28, Investing in Children participated in the FUN-tastic Community Celebration of National Family Literacy Day at the London Public Library. Around 240 families or 700 people joined in on the celebration!
Kids who visited our booth put their counting and strategy skills to the test with the game of Mancala. Families also enjoyed music, crafts, stories, face painting and more and learned new ways of developing literacy outside of the classroom.
Thank you to our volunteers from Save the Children Club at Western for helping us with the event.
