Read with a Falcon

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

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!

Here we are with Paul as he reads STANLEY THE BUILDER. We taped the segments on the indoor practice field.

Brian is getting Matt all mic'd up!

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

Joe Hawley | Center

Make sure you watch for these new story times, and check the Read with a Falcon website to see your favorite book and Falcons player!

Which player/book would you like matched up next?

Thanks so much to the Atlanta Falcons, especially Matt, Joe, & Paul! 

Keep reading!

  2. I live right here in Atlanta, and I have never heard of this. The fact that I have a music & literacy program adds to the embarrassment. Nevertheless, THIS...IS...SO...MAJORLY, COOL! Can't wait to see and share the video with my early learners. Oh, so cool!

    1. Hi Pam! It's a program we're growing! After you've seen the videos, let us know if you have any ideas for improvement :)
