On September 17, volunteers are requested to assist with the launch of the new children’s book Find Your Nose written by award-winning local author Rodo Sofranac. Rhythm, rhyme, and personalization of the learner’s name make for lots of fun! Find Your Nose gives the child or other language learner the opportunity to interact while discovering the names and functions of various body parts.

Join Rodo, illustrators Mark Wilson and Kent Looft, and all the characters from Polly and the Peaputts, and My Maddy, My Daddy as they introduce Find Your Nose. Rodo’s books help kids and folks of all ages increase their literacy skills and become better readers.

At this family-friendly event, volunteers can help in the following areas:
– welcoming and singing in attendees
– reading books to small groups
– assisting in the craft and music activities
– monitoring other activities
– helping with set-up
– helping with clean-up

Please sign up for a specific task and time slot here.

Dress code is clean and casual. We encourage shorts and colored shirts. We’ll also have super-soft sponsor t-shirts from Thrivent. Refreshments will be available.

Free parking is available on-site and next door, at the adjacent church.

All donations and half of book sale profits that Sunday will raise funds for Arizona Humanities Council. Arizona Humanities is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, but is dependent on local fundraising efforts to support its programs. “Arizona Humanities builds a just and civil society by creating opportunities to explore our shared human experiences through discussion, learning and reflection.” Within that mission, one of their primary goals is to “promote literacy through reading events for children and families.”

The other half of book sales will be used to produce, purchase, and donate more books to schools, libraries, and nonprofit agencies working to improve literacy. More than 80 organizations have benefited from these contributions since the publication of Rodo’s first children’s book.
