Virtual Family Literacy Event Featuring Kim Jocelyn Dickson

April 24, 2021 @ 9:00 am 12:00 pm

Join The Invisible Tool Box author, Kim Jocelyn Dickson, for a virtual literacy event Saturday, April 24th at 9am!

Event info:

In her 30 minute presentation with visuals, “The Invisible Toolbox: The Superpowers We Create When We Read for Fun,” Kim teaches elementary school kids (and their parents) that we humans can develop superpowers too—the kind of superpowers that will help us become successful in school and beyond. Students will learn that every one of us carries an invisible toolbox to school each day, and that if we read for fun, it will be filled with all the tools we need to become smart and powerful. Through storytelling, examples, and even a dash of neuroscience, children will learn that reading for fun grows their vocabulary, expands their worlds beyond home, makes school and homework easier for them, and more!  Children will be inspired to learn that famous and successful people they know built their own invisible toolboxes by reading for fun when they were young–and that it made all the difference for them.

The Invisible Toolbox

The Invisible Toolbox

The Power of Reading to Your Child from Birth to Adolescence

Longtime elementary school teacher Kim Jocelyn Dickson believes every child begins kindergarten with a lunchbox in one hand and an “invisible toolbox” in the other. In The Invisible Toolbox, Kim shares with parents the single most important thing they can do to foster their child’s future learning potential and nurture the parent-child bond that is the foundation for a child’s motivation to learn. She is convinced that the simple act of reading aloud has a far-reaching impact that few of us fully understand and that our recent, nearly universal saturation in technology has further clouded its importance.
