University of Portland's 19th annual Reading Fair is set for Sunday, February 24th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Chiles Center. The event is free and open to the public, and hosted by Kappa Delta Pi, the education honor society. Every child attending will receive a free, new book of their choice.
The fair's theme, A Day at the Zoo, is designed to be an integrated approach to literacy that will engage students from pre-kindergarten to middle school. Kid-friendly events throughout the day include arts, crafts and games that focus on reading, as well as an obstacle course.
The Reading Fair this year will host three authors, Victoria Jamieson, Eric Kimmel, and Mark Fearing who will read from some of their recent work!
