Knock Knock Flood Recovery Efforts

Imagination Playground™ is a mobile play system that is made of big, blue oversized blocks in many unique shapes and sizes. As part of community outreach, Knock Knock uses these block to transform any space — parks, festivals, summer camps, schools — into a playspace that encourages learning, social development, creativity, problem-solving and above all — fun

Raising a Reader programs actively engage parents in a routine of book sharing with their children from birth to age five. This program fosters:

  • Healthy brain development
  • Parent-child bonding
  • Motivation and a love of reading, and
  • Early literacy skills critical for school success

Knock Knock Children’s Museum is proud to be a Louisiana Affiliate for Raising A Reader, a program grounded in research that highlights the importance of family involvement in promoting children’s literacy. With nearly half of all U.S. children entering kindergarten lacking the early reading skills needed for success in school, Raising A Reader excites children and families with award-winning books each week and fosters healthy brain development, parent-child bonding, early literacy skills, and most importantly, a love of reading.
