Folkmanis® Puppets in the Community
Kids Learning Place - Dayton, Ohio
On February 29, 2008, members of the University of Dayton’s Pershing Rifles, a national military fraternity, visited the preschool classrooms at Kids Learning Place in Fairborn Ohio. They came to help out with a RIF (Reading is Fundamental) distribution. Children at Kid’s Learning Place receive free books from RIF five times a year. The cadets read books and put on a puppet show for the children, using puppets donated by Folkmanis® Puppets. After reading to the group, they helped the children select their own RIF books and then read to the children individually.
