WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The Simon Kidgits Club at The Westchester is hosting its annual Book Blast event and inviting parents and children to bring books to life through special read-aloud sessions, giveaways and story-inspired activities on Saturday, March 7, from noon to 2 p.m.
Simon is also teaming up with Better World Books to provide each child who attends the event a book and bookmark to take home, while supplies last. Simon Kidgits Club’s Book Blast will provide families the chance to make reading a fun, social experience with various kid-focused offerings.
Book Blast event activities will kick off with a read-aloud session presented by a surprise guest in the Food Court. Children are also invited to bring a new or gently used book to the event to be donated to Grace Church of White Plains, helping families give back to their own communities. Additionally, children will take part in book-related crafts and activities.
“Simon’s Kidgits Club is giving children the chance to experience all that books have to offer in a social setting,” said Jayne Stilson, assistant vice president of business development for Simon Brand Ventures, the business-to-consumer division of Simon Property Group, which operates The Westchester. “We’re combining education with fun and allowing kids to simply have a blast with reading alongside their peers.”
The Simon Kidgits Club is a fun and informative program that focuses on health, wellness, education, safety and entertainment for children ages 3-8.
Since 2003, the Simon Kidgits Club has kept children and parents alike amused with various events and activities while providing incentives for club members, such as special offers, rewards and games.
Kidgits Club members receive a variety of goodies, including a Kidgits Club T-shirt, membership card, birthday card and gift, discounts and scheduled activities.
