CCBQ's Community Programming Services recently held its Pajama Storytime session at the Malcolm X Day Care Center in Corona, Queens. This workshop taught parents the importance of early-reading, creating healthy reading environments at home and how to choose age-appropriate books. Parents and children read How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague. Other activities included arts and crafts using shapes. Each child went home with a backpack, book and dinosaur stuffed animal.


There's no better place to prepare for college than at CCBQ's Community Programming Services SAT Boot Camp at Riverdale Osborne Towers in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Participants spent the first session learning about the Khan Academy, an online resource aiding students with SAT prep, concerns and more. Later, participants were challenged in a practice test that measured their knowledge on core subjects and determined their strengths and weaknesses.
