Parks Child Development Center, a Quality Preschool Initiative partner site through Childe Development Associates, celebrated Read Across America Day on March 2, 2018. Executive Director Alethea Arguilez was invited to participate in the event and read the book Pirates Don’t Change Diapers to all children present. In addition to reading, the children also had the opportunity to make arts and crafts. The National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America, now in its 20th year, focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.
