Bernie Pavao from the University of Hawaii – Hawaii Community College – Children’s Center will be sharing with parents how to read to young children. She will demonstrate how to make reading exciting allowing books to come alive and be interesting to children. Bernie will be reading a story to children who attend. Parents with children under five (5) years of age can greatly benefit by this class and are encouraged to attend.
