Experts agree that children who read regularly and participate in educational activities over the summer are less likely to experience the “summer slide”, which is a loss of academic skills. So what can you do to help prevent this occurrence and prepare your child for Kindergarten? Visit the library with your child and sign up for our summer reading program!
This year’s theme is “Every Hero has a Story: Make Your Summer Count.” We will be offering programs that feature various kinds of heroes and fun storytimes. Children will have a chance to earn free books and other prizes as they complete their reading record if they are over age 4. In our “Little Hero’s” program, children age 4 and under, will complete engaging activities that are listed on the reading record your child will receive when they join the program which runs from June 8- August 7.
Activities to Get You Started:
- Take a walk in your neighborhood and talk about your experience.
- Tell a story using a wordless picture book.
- Read a nonfiction (true) book.
- Do a puzzle together.
