For the Love of Literacy "Pizza Plus Books" 2019 Event!

 

Pizza Plus Books Returns For the Fifth Year At the Loutit Library!
*********************************************************************************************

Joyful Noise Christian Childcare’s C-Fund is ready to give away many brand new books to young readers at the fifth consecutive “Pizza Plus Books” event on Wednesday, March 13th from 4:30-6:30 p.m., in program rooms A and B at Loutit District Library in Grand Haven!

No registration is necessary for the book fair, which is open to the public and will offer free books to underserved children from infancy up through eight years of age. Attendees can also enjoy a free pizza dinner from Domino’s as well as access to other early childhood resources.

“I have been able to help at the Literacy Event each year,” said Sue Sturgill, financial administrator of Joyful Noise Christian Childcare. “It is so heartwarming to watch the kids pick out their books! Reading is so important at an early age and I am very proud to help get books into children's hands.”

A 2005 High Scope learning study found that “the greatest amount of brain growth occurs between birth and age five” and that nearly all of the brain’s core structure has been formed by the age of just 3 years old. A strong foundation for literacy is developed at this time, and access to age-appropriate books is an essential part of that groundwork and a cornerstone of the Joyful Noise C-Fund’s Love of Literacy program mission. The C-Fund seeks to connect young children and families with not only high-quality books, but also early childhood resources to support lifelong learning.
