Free Children’s Books During United Way’s Bunny Book Bash at Post Oak Mall
COLLEGE STATION, TX (Mar. 29) – United Way of the Brazos Valley will host the 2nd Annual Bunny Book Bash, a free book giveaway, at Post Oak Mall the first two Saturdays in April: Apr. 6 from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm and Apr. 13 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. The goal of Bunny Book Bash is to encourage the love of reading and provide access to books during the Easter season.
Join United Way of the Brazos Valley while your child picks their own free book to take home with them. The selection is appropriate for babies, toddlers, children and teens. There will also be activities available for the children including: storybook time, interactive group activities and children’s free vision screenings provided by the College Station Noon Lions Club. On Apr. 6, they will also include face painting for the children to celebrate the arrival of the Easter Bunny at Post Oak Mall.
“Easter and spring time is a special time for parents to share new experiences with their children,” says Peggi Goss, VP Community Impact. “United Way of the Brazos Valley seeks to encourage parents to include reading with their children as part of those moments.”
Two-thirds of children living in poverty grow up with no books at home. Studies show that the number of books in the home is directly linked to reading achievement. Children who grow up with more access to books in their homes reach a higher level of education. United Way of the Brazos Valley is tackling this issue to support early literacy for all children in the Brazos Valley as part of the organization’s 2020 Regional Bold Goals.
