The Child Crisis Center of El Paso
Here's a photo from a visit I made to the Child Crisis Center of El Paso. It was the first stop while on my tour. It was also my first time reading my book to a group of children. They eased my nerves by laughing when I hoped they would. There was one boy who caught on to some important details about my story. That was a huge plus because it demonstrated he was listening intently.
The Center Against Sexual and Family Violence
This visit was an excellent one. I conducted a writing exercise with the children and read to them.
The Boys and Girls Club of El Paso
Santosh and I visited the Boys and Girls Club in Segundo Barrio where I conducted one of my writing workshops. 📝 The boys' responses to the writing exercise made for a hilarious visit. Everyone, myself included, couldn't stop laughing. I'm glad they enjoyed themselves. 😊 This has definitely been one of my favorite stops during my "Let Your Dreams Take Flight" Literacy Tour thus far. 📚
Local Reading Center
I had so much fun reading to the children at a local reading center. The children were so well behaved and were willing to go along with my silliness prior to the beginning our reading time. It was a wonderful and pleasant experience!
