State Sen. David Holt will be the inaugural guest of a new children’s reading program, Bringing Books to Life, made possible by a grant from Junior League of Oklahoma City. The weekly readings are nature-themed and intented for children ages 2 to 5.
“Showing children that reading is a joy is very important to me as a father and as a public servant,” Holt said in a press release. “Children who read well, and who enjoy reading, do better in school and in life. It’s a skill that’s critically important and a lot of fun. I am regularly a guest reader in my own home and look forward to taking my skills to the Gardens.”
Each reading takes place at 10 a.m. every Wednesday in the Visitors Lobby of the Crystal Bridge at Myriad Botanical Gardens, 301 W. Reno Ave. Admission is free. Call 445-7080 or visit myriadgardens.org. — Gazette staff
