Breathe in and READ

Over 100 people participated in this month's Family Story Hour events, including 13 volunteers from Hands On Bay Area (HOBA). What an amazing community event to kick off the summer!

In addition to selecting books to build their home libraries and taking part in pre-literacy crafts, students also learned and practiced yoga. It's Yoga Kids led the children in a series of yoga poses. All families went home with the family book give away, "A Day at the Beach."

Crafts are created to be duplicated at home using recycled and household materials. To try a craft, see the directions below.
