WIC Week is March 1st-7th
Have you check in with your local school, library, church, daycare or play group to check on an opportunity to read a construction/engineering/architecture book to a group?

Hearing stories strengthens the part of the brain associated with visual imagery, story comprehension, word meaning and introducing them to “career lingo”. Also strengthens children’s social, emotional, and character development.

Children are aware of only the relatively small number of occupations to which they are exposed, for example, doctor, dentist, teacher, firefighter, police officer, and whatever it is their parents and relatives do to make a living. Learning about other occupations broadens their choices and increases the odds that they will be able to find suitable careers. As they get closer to having to prepare for them, they can narrow down their choices and even begin to take related courses once they are in high school.
