Harlem Hospital is inviting families to Read and Romp at a special literacy event for children. The goal is to encourage Harlem families to prepare their kids for school by reading to them at home. Children will enjoy storybook readings, book-related-crafts, and will receive free books. Parents will receive information on how to make reading a regular part of their child’s routine for healthy brain development and school-readiness.
