On Friday, August 23rd, from 10:00-11:30 AM, Clifford the Big Red Dog will visit the Manchester City Library! The UNIQUE Peek into Books literacy series has been created to help educate parents on different activities to engage their toddler’s passion in reading and enhance their enjoyment of reading as a part of everyday life. The series is a statewide initiative to emphasize reading as a fun and recreational activity, using literacy and laughter as the main components.

One aspect of the program that makes it such a success is the use of “celebrities” who children are able to identify with. After reading books together, Clifford will act out the book with children to help grow their imaginations and actually become part of the book. All participants will have an opportunity to meet Clifford, have their photo taken, and will receive a free goody bag filled with a brand new book and other materials. Space is limited, so be sure to arrive  early! For more information, please call 624-6550 ext. 328.
