Our team had a spectacular afternoon at Naval Base San Diego’s family holiday event!

In partnership with the San Diego Strike Force, we had some great conversations with dozens of families about how our read-aloud programs are actively supporting San Diego’s children. Thousands of guests attended this special event, which took place at Admiral Prout Field on Saturday, Dec. 4th 2021.

Thank you to EJ from the SD Strike Force and to everyone who stopped by our booth! Happy holidays to all!

My name is Nicole Vargas. I joined the Reading Legacies team in January 2023. I have a BA in Child Development from Point Loma Nazarene University and 6 years’ experience working with children from ages infancy to adolescence. My role as the Storybook Readers Program Manager is to oversee the programing and implementation of our Youth Readers and Storybook Inspirations programs. As a child development professional, I have firsthand experience seeing the immense impact that reading aloud to children has on their early literacy skills and relationship building within the family and community. One of my favorite children’s books is If You Give A Mouse A Cookie by Laura Numeroff.
