Take Your Parents to the Playground Day & Little Free Library Dedication

Children’s Communication Center invites YOU!

Join us at Take Your Parents to the Playground Day! 

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EVENT INCLUDE:

  • Research shows early language develops stronger literacy and both create a foundation for learning & academic success. A child who reads will become a child who writes!

  • The three Little Free Library units will be painted by a local artist, Peter Koenig. He is a member of the BAET Design Group which is a Tallahassee based artist collective which also includes members Alex Koenig and Soymeeshii.
  • In addition, local children’s author, Willie Brown, also known to many in the community as Coach Brown, will be reading and signing his children’s books. Visit our Philanthropy Share story featuring Rockhead Synergy & Willie Brown.
