We’ve all heard the research about how important it is to introduce children from a very, very young age to the world of books and reading. Experts agree that the younger children are introduced to reading, the more they tend to gravitate towards books, and the better readers they become. In fact, many professionals even suggest reading to your baby before he or she is BORN! And most parents can’t wait until the day they bring their Kindergartener to the main desk of the public library for their very first library card! But why wait until then?
Why not help your child develop a love of reading and a comfort with the public library right now? In fact, they don’t even have to get dressed!
Children ages 2-6 and their families are invited to don their coziest pajamas and join the library staff for a special story time on Tuesday, January 27th at 6:30 PM in the library’s Raddin Children’s Room. Kids can cuddle up with parents while surrounded by books, hearing some great stories.
While you are there, ask about the other various story time and children’s programs that they offer to the community. What better way to make your child feel comfortable with reading, and to foster good reading skills that will last a lifetime?
