Activity: Chicago Architecture Foundation | Read & Build

Was thrilled to tag-a-long on a school field trip to the Chicago Architecture Foundation Read & Build : Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site.

It was a blast for both the kids and chaperones - we highly recommend it for families to attend!

The CAF did a great job with the kids; read well, interacting with the kids throughout the story; and then kids were able to build with blocks and create their own tractor.


  • The whole activity was well themed, with the book really getting kids excited to build and create.
  • The highlight was the model version of Chicago in the lobby -- the kids loved pointing out the river, John Hancock, Willis Tower, Soldier Field, and looking for their school.
  • The Read & Build program curriculum changes each month.

Cost Savings:

Downtown/Loop - close to a variety of public transportation
224 South Michigan Avenue

Kid's Jury: 5 stars
It was great - we'll be doing it again!
