On December 18, Reading Legacies hosted a holiday-themed Family Story Hour at Liberty Station. Children’s book author and anti-bullying advocate, Stephen Tako, shared his Junga book series with military families and the community. Guest speaker, Carlos Ramirez shared his and his wife’s experience during their time in the Youth Reader program. Board member, Derek Cox, dressed up as Santa Claus for the children to enjoy. Also in attendance were volunteers from National Charity League. Joyride Bookshop set up their mobile bookstore in the North Promenade field inviting many of the families that stopped to shop to also stay for the read-aloud.
Thank you to Stephen Tako, Carlos Ramierez and his family, Derek Cox, NCL, Joyride Bookshop, photographer Ken Culver, and the families that joined us!
