Raising Readers: Summer

June 2 - August 29




WSKG's Raising Readers is part of a national effort that uses the power of public media to help children ages 2 to 8 improve their literacy skills.

Join us for 2014 Raising Readers: Summer, a multi-platform event designed to celebrate learning all summer long.  Raising Readers: Summer includes 10 weeks of special on-air programming, online activities for kids and parents, a social media campaign and events right here in the Southern Tier!

Join us on Saturday, July 26th at the Broome County Public Library for "Race Into Reading" event from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.  Enjoy hands on activities based on your favorite PBS KIDS shows including Dinosaur Train and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood.  Meet race car driver Brian Watson and take your photo with his WSKG race car!  Special PBS KIDS screenings will take place at 11:30a.m. and 12:30p.m.  Vroom away with great family resources to keep the learning going all summer long!
