Sosnowski has the scoop: Ice cream social for book-loving kids
Reading does have its rewards.
Proof positive comes in the form of Wednesday's ice cream social being held by Rep. Joe Sosnowski (R-Rockford) for children who completed his summer reading challenge.
The ice cream gathering celebrates the kindergarten to sixth-grade students who read the books from a list of space-themed reading list.
“This year’s summer reading program, 'To the Library and Beyond!' featured the theme of space exploration as a way to illustrate to kids the unlimited paths of adventure they can discover through reading,” Sosnowski said in a press release. “We will be recognizing the readers who completed the program with ice cream, certificates and some great prizes.”
Kids who attend will also get the chance to win gift cards from Barnes and Noble.
“The goal is to allow children the opportunity to see how reading can impact their lives in a positive way,” Sosnowski said in a press release. “Reading can open up unlimited possibilities for kids and keep their minds active as they have some fun during summer break. We try to make the brochures available to every child within the age bracket, but I invite anyone interested in participating next year to contact my office.”
The ice cream social will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at Peak Sports Club.
