Love of Reading Shared at Read and Romp

Reach Out and Read San Diego (RORSD) held its fifth annual Read and Romp on March 22, 2014 at the McMillin Event Center at Liberty Station in Point Loma, Calif.  The event included a raffle, silent auction, and a private concert by well-known children’s band Hullabaloo.  Storybook stations carried themes of classic children’s books such as Dr. Seuss’ “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish” and featured related games, arts and crafts projects, and other fun activities.  First 5 San Diego hosted a booth with a coloring station and gave away books and bookmarks to children.

RORSD, funded in part by First 5 San Diego, prepares children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together.  RORSD serves more than 65,000 children and their families annually.  For more information about Reach Out and Read San Diego, visit www.rorsd.org
