APS Story Time in the Park was created to get books into the hands of kids! It is key to preventing summer learning loss.

  • Story Time in the Park is an APS Title I Family Engagement initiative that provides certified teachers who host read aloud sessions for children and their families at a number of Summer Lunch Meal Sites in the City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County
  • Through modeling and teaching, caring adults learn about the reading process, strategies for reading aloud, and questioning techniques for reading comprehension
  • Families leave each Story Time in the Park Session with a copy of the book that was read and shared, and an activity sheet/lesson plan of strategies and supports for reading at home
  • The aim is to support families so they can guide their children toward reading proficiency and a life-long joy of reading
  • Young children who have access to books in the home, and who are read aloud to regularly, have the best chance of becoming successful readers (Snow 2014)
