LEGO DUPLO has launched the Read! Build! Play! national tour and is coming to Jackson, Mississippi to ignite exploration in toddlers and introduce new ways to play and learn to parents.
Designed for children under five, the Read! Build! Play! experience brings together reading, building, singing and storytelling in a fun, educational way. As story tellers read, children will be encouraged to build, sing, play and explore through original games and creative activities.
The experience also celebrates the hard work of librarians across the country in their quest to help grow our youth. In June, the Association of Library Service to Children kicked off a national program with LEGO DUPLO in which parents can support their local libraries by nominating them to receive special recognition for all their hard work. Simply visit www.readbuildplay.com to nominate your local library – the top 200 will receive toolkits full of bricks, books and other items to ensure your community has even more resources to encourage play and learning all summer long!
If for some reason you can’t join in-person, you will be able to take the experience home with you by visiting www.readbuildplay.com and downloading the Parent Activity Guide, full of suggestions and ideas on how to keep playtime fresh, energetic and educational. On August first, you will also be able to download a toolkit specially designed for librarians to use.
