Ready to Read Festival activities

Musical guests, The Corner, who get kids moving and laughing through interactive hip hop storytelling, will perform three sets at 10 a.m., 10:45 a.m., and 11:30 a.m. Get a taste of The Corner.

Walk around our pretend town and experience activities based on the five early literacy practices (Read, Talk, Sing, Write, and Play), including sensory stations, an iPad play center, games, and so much more. Storytimes will occur at 10:15, 10:45, 11:15, and 11:45 in the Quiet Room. Visit all the stations, stamp your map at each one, and receive a free book to take home!

Be sure to have your face painted by a member of Cincinnati Circus!

Additional activities will be provided by community partners who are part of Play Learn and Grow, including balloon animals, a photo booth, music, and free car seat checks by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
