What a day!Â We had the opportunity to attend the kickoff event for theÂ Bark About Books initiative at the Tadpole Playground in Boston Common.Â Mayor Menino, Billy Costa of Kiss 108 FM and Susan Meddaugh – Martha Speaks author/illustrator, and Creative Producer of the TV show Martha Speaks helped kick off the event. Ms. Meddaugh spoke about her wonderful series Martha Speaks.Â She along with Mayor Menino read to the kids. It was fun!Â They also talked about the importance of having your kids continue to read in the summer!
WGBH-TV partnered with ReadBoston and WGBY to provide readers in Boston and Springfield with access to high quality childrenâ€™s books, coupled with activities and reading incentives. Over the summer the Bark About Books! Massachusetts Summer Reading Initiative will distribute more than 5,000 books to children in Boston and Springfield communities.
So happy reading to you and your family!
