Community Opportunities


Letterland Day has turned into Letterland Month, and Raleigh is offering a self-guided program for young readers to hunt for Clever Cat, Golden Girl, Harry Hat Man and the rest of the Letterland gang.


This year, between May 3 and May 23, families can visit Pullen Park and other sites around Raleigh to find all 26 of the characters. Some special literacy-themed activities also will be available (though supplies are limited).


To map out your plans for finding all of the Letterlanders, be sure to check the city's website, which lists the schedules and locations of each.
