She also likes coming to Miss Kim's Storytime, and Music Monday and doing arts and crafts. Great job to mom and dad for instilling the love of the library, books and reading at a young age.
This program was launched to get children ready for school, and to encourage more parent/child library visits. Books are logged and prizes are awarded along the way. One of the best ways to encourage pre-reading skills is to spend time sharing books each and every day. Reading provides a solid foundation, a key to school and learning success.
