Every summer, Peachtree teams up with the Atlanta Falcons for a weekly online story time called Read with a Falcon.

STANLEY THE BUILDER
Community-minded Falcons players and cheerleaders take the time to share a picture book with young sports fans. We are very proud of this partnership, and we're so glad that the Falcons are doing their part to promote literacy and a love of reading.
I got to tag along to watch the filming for a few of the segments! Too cool, right?
This summer's videos aren't live yet, but I thought I'd share a few behind-the-scenes pictures here. Enjoy! And make sure to check back for the full-length story times!

Joe's reading of LOST FOR WORDS was excellent. He even did the voices for Giraffe, Hippo, and Flamingo--so cute!
