Early literacy is one key to a successful life. We decided to design a special series using Barclay (a book and active-play loving dog) that would provide literacy and active-play ideas for young kids.
We put the Activity Book into “Barclay’s Book Bag” along with an active-play item, and an Early Reader book that encourages active play, and hand them out at local food banks and Head Start Programs.
As you can imagine, they’re a hit!
We believe building a library is key to building literacy. So does Barclay!
Our new partner, Norway Savings Bank, is helping us build libraries in local Head Start classrooms. You can too!
At Team Long Run we believe kids deserve to succeed at life. That’s why we focus on running and reading – two great activities that help with so much else!
