As part of our Youth Arts Institute, each month, Charter Oak Cultural Center holds Read It and Sleep, a family reading program that invites neighborhood children and their families to hear a story read to them by a community leader or a local author, enjoy healthy snacks and take home a copy of the book for their families to read together- all free of charge. Some examples of books read this past year include:
- There was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly by Pam Adams
- The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Lane Smith and Jon Scieszka
- Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People’s Ears: A West African Tale by Verna Aardema, Leo Dillon and Diane Dillon
- Snowzilla by Janet Lawler
Read It and Sleep is sponsored in part by the Ellis A. Gimbel Trust.
