We’re excited to announce our new program, Words with the Wise. The goal of this program is to work with seniors in our community to encourage children to become lifelong readers.
It will take place once per month at alternating assisted living homes throughout Kootenai and Shoshone County. The locations will rotate on a monthly basis, to give us the chance to include as many of our cherished seniors as possible.
Our very first event will be held at Guardian Angel Homes in Post Falls, ID from 1:00 PM – 1:30 PM. We will have a resident read a children’s book of their choice. Refreshments will be provided with special thanks from Pilgrim’s Market. The community is welcome to join us. All you need to do is RSVP below.
Reading is such an important part of a young child’s life. By getting our community actively involved, we are instilling an early love of reading. This will not only help young children succeed in school, it will help them succeed in life.
