Afternoon in July
Creative Activities will Promote Summer Reading for Families
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- June 24, 2013
Books-A-Million, Inc. (Nasdaq/NM: BAMM) will kick off their free Family Fun
Camp beginning Saturday, July 6^th, from 2-4 p.m. Every Saturday in July,
Books-A-Million will feature free crafts, storytime and fun storybook themed
adventures for the whole family.
Adults and kids are invited to experience camp indoors where the weather is
always nice as they enjoy the best in summer reading; games and creating their
own take home crafts.
“We want our Family Fun Camps to be something that appeals to children of all
ages, as well as include educational elements that promote literacy,” said
Sandra Wilson, Senior Buyer of Children’s and Teen Books at Books-A-Million.
“Our goal is to foster a love of reading through the summer months.”
Books are known to help break summer boredom. The summer months leave extra
time for enthusiastic read-alouds with children, no matter what their age.
Books that teach kids how to make or do something are a great way to get kids
reading and keep them occupied.
