American Dream Celebrates Read Across America Day with Children's Read-Aloud and Crafts Hour
March 2, 2021; 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
American Dream
1 American Dream Way
East Rutherford, New Jersey
Web Site
Event Cost: No Charge. Pre-Registration is Required.
This year, American Dream celebrates the National Education Association’s Read Across America Day with a fun-filled hour of storytelling, craft activities and giveaways for children ages four to ten.
Leading the Read-Aloud will be New Jersey Family magazine’s Editorial Director, Dina El Nabli, who will read Breathing Makes it Better by Christopher Willard and Wendy O'Leary. This sweet story teaches children how to navigate powerful emotions like anger, fear, sadness, confusion, anxiety, and loneliness. After the readings, children will be treated to a physically-distant craft activity and packaged treats to take home.
Each attendee will also receive a coupon good for a future visit to Blacklight Mini Golf or Mirror Maze--American Dream’s newest attraction, a mind-bending galaxy of corridors with twists and turns around every corner.
