Carolyn Brown, Executive Director of PEACE, Inc., took a break from her executive duties to visit Merrick Head Start and read to the children in room 211. Brown’s warm and engaging storytelling brought the pages of the book to life for the young listeners.
The children were captivated by Brown’s stories and her expressive reading. They giggled at the funny parts, gasped at the suspenseful moments, and cheered for the characters they came to love.
Brown’s visit was a reminder of the importance of early literacy and the power of storytelling. She hopes that her visit will inspire the children to develop a love of reading that will stay with them throughout their lives.
“It was such a joy to read to the children at Merrick Head Start,” Brown said. “Their enthusiasm and excitement were contagious. I hope that I was able to spark a love of reading in them that will last a lifetime.”
