Each year, Citiparks celebrates the joy of reading with “Alphabet Trail and Tales.” This is the 16th year for this event which is free for the whole family! “Alphabet Trail and Tales” focuses on early and elementary literacy. Children follow the Alphabet Trail from A to Z where the best in children’s books is presented. This year, the books being read are Caps for Sale, Alexander, Who’s Not (Do You Hear Me? I Mean It!) Going to Move, Number One SamTops and Bottoms and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild.

While you enjoy a walk in beautiful Frick Park, there’s interactive, hand-painted story sets that create a backdrop for a day of reading. Each letter of the alphabet offers a new activity and storytellers. Included in the festivities are art, music, games, a puppet parade, and more so the entire family can enjoy the event.

It all takes place in Frick Park this Saturday, September 12 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.
