Begbie Reading Events Get Kids (and Parents) Excited about Literacy

On Wednesday, September 26, Begbie Elementary's library was crammed with parents for the school's monthly "Read with Your Child" event. Hosted and organized by energetic Begbie librarian Brad Toews, the event was designed to get ELL parents and grandparents reading with their young children.

LiteracyTo facilitate this, each month Toews picked up snacks, juice and coffee as well as an assortment of dual language books, which feature English on one-side and languages like Chinese or Punjabi on the other side. 

Principal Robert Bodden says the "Read with Your Child" events have helped the school reach into their community and encourage children to work on their literacy skills with their parents' help.
