BROOKLYN, N.Y. – A shopping trip to the Food Bazaar in Brownsville turned into scavenger hunt recently for 7-year-old Cameron Johnson and his family after he read these directions: “Talking is teaching. Let’s talk as we shop. Can you find some of these animals in our store?”

And off he went with his mother and sister to scour the aisles for animal characters posted throughout the store.

“Learning Landscapes” is a program launched by the not-for-profit group United for Brownsville to help children build literacy skills and help draw families closer together.
