Watch PCPA actors read books aloud
PCPA, the incredible theater and fine arts program at Allan Hancock College, has several books read aloud by its actors and recorded for anyone to watch and listen to. 

It's a great way to keep children engaged and excited over the summer. Maybe your family can listen to a book or chapter together each night!

Here's the information:

PCPA Reads@Home captures the excitement of reading, storytelling, and characters in videos that can be enjoyed by children and adults. PCPA acting students star in these picture book videos that bring language to life.

PCPA has 27 picture books and the entirety of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, all 17 chapters, recorded. (The publishers' special permission for Harry Potter will expire on June 30.) 

PCPA wants as many people as possible to enjoy these great books. So please share the fun collection with your students, family, and friends! 


Here are the titles of the picture books that are compiled in the PCPA Reads at Home Playlist. Please visit the PCPA YouTube link above or PCPA's YouTube page to find each video.
