Bookmarked! program focuses on early literacy, lines up special programs for families
Posted September 20
On Saturday, the Lucy Daniels Center, which provides mental health services for children from birth to age 11, will hold Bookmarked, an event designed for early childhood teachers and therapists on subjects such as using books to promote social skills, using rhyme and rhythm to promote early literacy and managing teacher stress.
But, as part of the event, parents and kids are invited to three free special readings. Each of them run about 30 minutes. It takes place at the center, 9003 Weston Parkway, in Cary.
Here's what's scheduled for Saturday:
- 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.: “The Almost Perfect Sleepover," with author Audrey Penn, who also wrote "The Kissing Hand."
- noon to 1 p.m., “Dance of the Chameleon," Drs. Al and Kathy Sturgis
- 1:30 p.m. to 2:15 p.m., "The Not So Perfect Hat Club," Jena Ball.
Space is limited for each of these. If you'd like to attend, contact Evelyn McCauley at the Lucy Daniels Center at 919-795-1455 for reservations.
Parking might be a little tricky as the center has limited spaces. If you can't find a spot, park in the Centre Green Office Park behind the Deutsche Bank building, 3000 Centre Green Way, which will require a 10 minute walk from the lot to the center. Once you park, make your way to the Weston Greenway. Turn left onto the greenway and follow it to its end on Weston Parkway. You'll see the Lucy Daniels Center to the left of the trail, just across the grass. Walk up the hill to the main entrance of the center. Parking along very busy Weston Parkway is not advised.
