Milk + Bookies Host Story Time Event With Celebrity Readers For National Literacy Month

Over the weekend, Milk + Bookies, a non profit organization that inspires children to give back using books as currency, hosted a fun story time event featuring books, fun activities for the entire family and a few celebrity readers.

During the Westfield Culver City event, celebrities such as Busy Phillips, Constance Zimmer, Mason Cook, Alexis Bellino, Elizabeth Rohm and Caroline Sunshine read to the children from several of my own personal favourites:

  • The Giving Tree
  • Knock Knock Jokes
  • Miss Rumphries
  • Puff The Magic Dragon
  • If You Give A Mouse A Cookie

Lots of fun was had by all! Along with the various activities and book reading, Busy Phillips and her daughter Birdie munched on Isabella’s cookies while reality star Alexis Bellino posed with her husband, their son and two daughters at the Milk + Bookies photo booth. Elizabeth Rohm ended up donating books to the Venice Boys + Girls Club and Disney star Caroline Sunshine hosted a dance off on stage.

At the end of the event Westfield Culver City donated $7,500 to Milk + Bookies to support their work and charitable efforts.
