One of the best parks I have ever visited is in Battle Creek!

On Wednesday afternoons I am lucky enough to read to children with the Community Action Agency. We meet at Mill Race Park and enjoy classics like "Where the Wild Things Are", and "The Lorax".

We have a great time and kinderiq.com listed the 10 ten reasons why you should read to your kids...

  • Reading sparks imagination
  • Reading demands attention
  • Reading forces literacy
  • Reading reinforces book-mechanics.
  • Reading helps children sleep
  • Reading helps speaking.
  • Reading increases vocabulary.
  • Reading provokes critical thought.
  • Reading begets reading.
  • Teachers will thank you

Everyone is welcome to this wonderful park to enjoy a story or two with WKFR.
