My girls and I are so excited to be attending the Museum of Discovery and Science’s Soar with Reading event tomorrow, July 17th in Fort Lauderdale. Sponsored by JetBlue and Magic Tree House, this event is free with paid museum admission. This is the fifth annual Soar with Reading program event which is part of a nation-wide tour of the award-winning summer literacy initiative. In honor of its 5th anniversary, Soar with Reading will host a book party featuring Shadow of the Shark, the latest book from best-selling author Mary Pope Osborne. My girls (who LOVE reading) are so excited to be able to meet Mary Pope Osborne!!!!
– Reading by Mary Pope Osborne of her new book, Shadow of the Shark
– Performance from Jack and Annie, the lead characters from Mary Pope Osborne’s Magic Tree House book series
– Shark-themed interactive activities such as digging for shark’s teeth beneath a 50’ Megalodon shark inside the Museum’s EcoDiscovery center and creating a shark tooth necklace
Soar with Reading places age-appropriate books in the hands of children in underserved areas while also encouraging children’s imaginations to take flight through reading. Residents of Fort Lauderdale will have the chance to bring books to local children in need through the national Soar with Reading #BookBattle. Five cities – Detroit, Houston, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, and New York – are currently competing in the first-ever #BookBattle. The city that receives the most online votes by August 31, 2015 will receive 100,000 children books.
