I am delighted to return to the streets and playgrounds of Boston this summer in my 16th year with STORYMOBILE an exciting summer literacy initiative which sends several live storytellers to cover 80 sites each week for 6 weeks every summer. I am delighted to be one of this company.
ReadBoston is Mayor Walsh's early literacy program, reaching Boston's children at all points in their day, all year long. Founded by Mayor Thomas M. Menino in 1995 to address low literacy levels among Boston's youth, ReadBoston has since grown into a city-wide leader in the field of early literacy.
ReadBoston is the city’s only comprehensive early literacy program, reaching children at all points in their day, all year long. They provide schools, after school programs, early childhood centers, summer programs and families with the resources they need to set Boston’s children on the path to reading success. Outside of school, ReadBoston focuses effort to integrate literacy into after school programs and provides children with free books and fun storytellings during the summer.
Free and open to the public, children listen to stories and then get to choose a free book.
