Every child deserves the chance to learn and thrive in an environment that is enriched by the latest technology. This year the Toy Emporium has planned a wide variety of educational, entertaining and fun programs to help children fill their days.
Despite research that indicates the importance of summer reading in preventing children from losing literacy skills, only 17 percent of parents say reading is a top summer priority, according to a survey conducted. It also shows that children spend nearly three times as many hours weekly watching TV or playing video games as they do reading in the summer.</p><blockquote>“Bring your 3-6 year old child every Thursday morning from 10:45-11:30am and listen as Miss Linda or Miss Sandra spin tales from around the world, incorporating subtle critical thinking exercises that challenge their young minds,” says Denise Gary, VP of Toy Emporium.
“Reading is the best vacation. It takes you places you never dreamed you would visit, and summer, especially is a time when kids can immerse themselves in the topics they like best," said Denise Gary.
Denise Gary says, “We use the FlexTIM Critical Thinking Method, which teaches all children to recognize “what it says”, “what it means,” and “why it matters” when reading.”</blockquote><p>At the reading event, there may be singing, dancing or silliness – and FREE organic popcorn. A new “Tales from Around the World” story will take place every Thursday morning in the store! Story time is free and is especially perfect for 3-6 year olds. Doors open at 10:35--Hope to see you there!
