‘Tell Me a Story’ returns April 24

The Fort Irwin Parent to Parent Team is preparing for their spring “Tell Me A Story” event to take place April 24.

The event will take place in the cafeteria of Tiefort View Intermediate School from 4 – 5 p.m., April 24.

Tell Me a Story is an initiative created to empower military children using literature and is geared for children ages 4-12. The program is funded through the Military Child Education Coalition.

National Training Center and Fort Irwin Command Sgt. MaJ. Lance P. Lehr is scheduled to read the book “The Remarkable Farkle McBride” by John Lithgow. The book’s theme is about trying new things and how perseverance pays off in the end and is a favorite at Tell Me A Story events.

“We choose books with topics that military kids can relate to,” said Tara Habhab, A Parent to Parent team member. “The book gets them talking about how they deal with things like moving often and living with deployments.”

Following the story, children will participate in group discussions and activities, including a craft.

Each family that signs up in advance will receive a free copy of the book. To sign up, parents should send an email with the number attending to ptop.irwin@militarychild.org.

Parent to Parent is a program of the Military Child Education Coalition, which is a non-profit organization that promotes partnerships between military installations and their supporting school districts. More information about Tell Me A Story can be found at www.militarychild.org.
