This program is for newborns and children not yet enrolled in Kindergarten and encourages children to hear oral text. Reading to preschool aged children builds vocabulary and language skills, establishes a love of books, and creates fond memories of reading together. Listening to books read aloud helps children with skills they need to be be ready for kindergarten. Children learn patterns in language, rhyming words, and how stories flow. This program is self paced and easy for parents and children to participate in. By reading just one book a day to your child, you will be able to reach 1000 books before the age of three. Modeling reading to your child will help them become lifelong readers. Stop by the children’s desk to learn more about this program and get on your way to raising a successful reader.
