iRead Outside: Stories in the Garden provides opportunities for families to combine a love of reading with a love of being outdoors. Our goal is to increase the percentage of family members reading to children daily, while at the same time encouraging children and families to explore nature and get outside together. This summer, LandPaths brings to you a series of consistent weekly reading events outside, anchored at Bayer Farm, that models reading out loud to children. Starting Thursday, June 13th through Thursday, August 1st (with the exception of Thursday, July 4th) we will be at Bayer Farm from 12:30pm-2:30pm reading, playing and learning together. Activities include nature exploration in the garden, modeling techniques for reading out loud and a raffle/book give away! These reading sessions are best suited for infants ages 0-6 years old but, older siblings and family is welcomed to join us.
