HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Virtual Reading Parties allow our community to stay connected and engaged through these isolating times. Our hope is that these readings offer some structure and comfort to children, parents, and families and remind everyone of the importance of a bedtime routine. 

DESCRIPTION

Pajama Program continues to spark the imagination of children everywhere and bring people together by hosting Virtual Reading Parties online. Kicking off on March 20th in honor of World Storytelling Day, Pajama Program began hosting daily Virtual Reading Parties of some of our favorite stories across our social channels to help children connect over a story and continue a bedtime routine during these uncertain times. The Pajama Program team will host some readings, and we will be featuring some very special guest readers, too.


ITEMS NEEDED

An appropriate children's book, a recording device (phone or camera), possibly a computer to upload the video if it cannot be done via phone for any reason.

Confirm with our staff the book you've chosen to read has not already been read or is not waiting to be read.

Record a video of yourself reading (have fun with it!) and upload it to the provided file share. 

We will tell you when your video will be posted so you'll know when to tune into our social media channels.
