Plant the Seed to Read — Youngstown Area Children’s Book Fair
More than 900 people attended the annual Plant the Seed to Read at Mill Creek MetroPark in Youngstown. Western Reserve PBS participated in the event with meet-and-greets all day with Daniel Tiger from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Princess Presto from Super Why. In addition, President and CEO Trina Cutter was a celebrity reader at the event.
The goal of the event is to promote literacy in the Mahoning Valley by providing community and educational resources, hosting story times throughout the day and ensuring that every child goes home with a free book. Event founders and partners are Altrusa Club of Youngstown, Mill Creek MetroParks, Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County and Western Reserve PBS.
