Tour of Parks

In preparation for the next year, Little Read Wagon staff is considering several City of San Antonio parks as possible Play & Learn sites. Which parks do you enjoy visiting with your family?

Visit the Parks and Recreation website for the full list of parks maintained by the City of San Antonio.

Can you identify this park?

Hint: It is on the South side of town and begins with a "T".

Can you name two places that start with "W" and are lots of fun?

Yes! Our Play & Learn locations for the rest of July: Woodlawn Lake and Walker Ranch Park!

On Tuesdays, July 7, 14, 21 and 28 the Little Read Wagon team will bring Play & Learn to the Woodlawn Lake Community/Wi-Fi Room. Look for us at the corner of Cincinnati and Alexander, on the south end of the tile-roofed gym.

On Thursdays, July 9, 16, 23 and 30 we will be at Walker Ranch Park. Please access the park from West Avenue. We'll be in the pavilion and playground area.

Programs at both locations begin at 9:00am. This week we'll be exploring birds and bugs.

I am an artist!



This week at Play & Learn we are exploring what it means to be an artist. This includes lots of opportunities for creative expression. Join us on Thursday at 9:00am at Martin Luther King Park (rain or shine, barring any flooding!) for some color mixing, singing, dancing, sewing, sculpting and reading fun!

Even if you don't make it to Play & Learn, perhaps you'd enjoy this book by one of our favorite authors. It's available in English and Spanish.

Music and More Early Literacy Moves

Little Read Wagon will offer one more "Music and More Early Literacy Moves" workshop on Wednesday, August 19 at the Central Library, 9:15am-12:30pm. We will explore how we can build early literacy skills while incorporating more music and movement into the everyday experiences of the children in your care.
