“You Can Yell Outside”

R2LP So says Bridget in the new publication, Places to Play in Providence: A Guide to the City by Our Youngest Citizens, from Ready To Learn Providence,

To welcome the more than 2,500 early-care educators arriving in Providence this weekend for the Professional Development Institute of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the city’s youngest residents created this wonderful guidebook.

The book was a project of Ready to Learn Providence, Making Learning Visible (a program out of Harvard University), and preschool educators in the R2LP/MLV Peer Network. It’s a reminder that even our youngest citizens can serve as ambassadors for their communities.

Providence Mayor Angel Taveras will mention the book in his greeting to conference participants Sunday night, and copies will be distributed at that event.

Some of the entries are right off the cuteness chart. Alfie likes seeing ‘The Lion King’ at PPAC, “Kids can sleep there because it’s a long show.” But mostly it’s about swings and parks, and the Children’s Museum comes highly recommended. (Click here for online version of book.)
