ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Dozens of children and their families spent their morning reading in the shade.
It’s part of the “Story Time in the Park” program. For the next two months, Albuquerque Public School teachers will read books to children at 35 parks, community centers and other locations.
On Wednesday, APS Superintendent Raquel Reedy read to students at Alamosa Park.
“It’s a wonderful bonding experience for families, learning, there’s nothing like it. Reading together, nothing takes the place of that experience,” said Reedy.
The program will provide more than 100,000 free books to children.
