Discover a Love for Reading and Nature

Let’s Read Outside/Leamos Afuera

  • Let’s read bilingual, nature-themed books in a beautiful place!
  • Let’s play and sing in the garden!
  • Let’s make arts and crafts inspired by nature!
  • Let’s learn about the bugs, insects, and animals that live on the earth with us!
  • Let’s make new friends!

Reading aloud is the most important thing you can do to get your child ready for kindergarten. Time in nature has been shown to improve focus, wellbeing, and happiness. With Let’s Read Outside, our we’ve combined the two!

While Let’s Read Outside is geared towards children 5 and younger, older youth are welcomed to participate and contribute as reading mentors. The program emphasizes a love for reading, promotes a sense of wonder in nature, and supports parents and caregivers as they help their child or children understand stories and develop language skills through books about nature.
