10th Annual Plant the Seed to Read — Youngstown Area Children’s Book Fair
Curious George and Man With the Yellow Hat were on hand for the 10th Annual Plant the Seed to Read Youngstown Area Book Fair on April 16, 2016. Taking place at the Fellows Riverside Gardens, the free event brought together storytellers, illustrators, book characters, celebrity readers and many fun activities for children.
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.
