Little Man ice cream fundraiser with Reach Out and Read Colorado

Reach Out and Read Colorado and Little Man Ice Cream are hosting an Authors & Ice Cream series this summer! Join us at various Little Man Ice Cream locations in Denver throughout the summer for storytime with local authors to benefit early literacy. 

Kick-Off Event:

Local author, Leslie Mitchell Assini, will be reading one of her children’s books at 4:30pm and again at 5:30pm. Enjoy ice cream from Little Man before, during, or after listening to the story! 20% of proceeds from all ice cream sales will go to Reach Out and Read Colorado to support early literacy across Colorado.
