Storytime with the Phillies Ballgirls

Following the Thanksgiving holiday, Ballgirls Kristina and Leanne were invited to the Barnes & Noble in Newark, DE to take part in Storytime, a brief time for children in the store to sit and listen to a book or two read aloud. This week’s Storytime would be particularly special as Kristina and Leanne were reading The Phillie Phanatic’s Philadelphia Story together. Following the Phanatic on a trip through Philadelphia’s history proved fun and exciting for both kids and parents alike. Kristina also had the opportunity to read If You Give a Dog a Donut, and Leanne read Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. Pete the Cat had a sing-a-long aspect and the children – and even some of the parents – joined in! Also at Barnes & Noble that day was a great organization called Kind to Kids, who work with foster children and underprivileged children in the state of Delaware. The Ballgirls had an incredible time reaching out to some of their tiniest fans and getting to spend the morning entertaining the children. Below are some photos shared by Caroline Jones of Kind to Kids.
