Our team had a fabulous time at Naval Base San Diego’s Spring Fling 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, including the Easter Bunny, which took place on April 9th, 2022. Over 120 families stopped by our booth to hear about our programs and enter a drawing for a free book.

Thank you to all of the SD Strike Force players who joined us and to everyone who stopped by our booth!

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.
