FAMILY READING NIGHT/ 45-60 min / K-5th grades
Family Reading Night is such a delightful way to celebrate learning, the imagination, and of course, books. Paddy selects age-appropriate stories for the children to act out with her, as well as something for those who choose to stay in the audience to watch. It is truly a “shared experience.” Using a few simple costumes and props, the stories are acted out in such a way that makes the stories fun and memorable.
“Paddy is an incredibly engaging and effective speaker and educator. Her message of linking literature to the state standards was evident and her love for the art of literature rang true in her entire presentation.”
