Tell Me A Story gives free books to Fort Bragg military Families

FORT BRAGG, N.C. - Tell Me A Story is a community-wide literacy event open to all Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base active-duty, Guard, or Reserve Families. This event will take place Oct. 25 from 3 to 4:30 p.m., at Throckmorton Library.

Tell Me A Story: Making Connections and Finding Support through Literature is a Military Child Education Coalition initiative created to empower our military children by using literature and their own stories in a way that fosters skills for resilience, strong peer and parent connections, a sense of pride and accomplishment, and a caring community.

The Oct. 25 event will feature a very special children's book, "Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type," written by Doreen Cronin, which focuses on children and perseverance. Brig. Gen. Michael Repass, commanding general, U.S. Army, Special Forces Command, and his wife will be the guest readers.

The day will end with a parent/child discussion and activity relating to the themes in the book.
There is no charge for this event and each Family will receive a copy of this beautiful book to add to their home library.

Reservations for this Family event must be made by Oct. 9. Contact Fort Bragg Parent to Parent at 494-1663 to make a reservation or for additional information. Space is limited, so call today.
