Project Leader: Jazmine LeBlanc
Neighborhood: East Lake
This group of parents and neighbors in East Lake plan to start a weekly reading group that culminates in a playful Book Fiesta on World Book Day in April, where they will bring some of their favorite books to life with readings and creative activities. This team knows that play has the power to build trust, unity, and cross-cultural understanding among their diverse neighbors and their children. This project will contribute to kindergarten readiness and literacy rates by engaging families in literacy, making books easily accessible and reading fun.
