“Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or a duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift.” Kate DiCamillo
Reading aloud to children is an excellent way for parents to nurture a love of reading and also help build the necessary skills for success in reading. During February, the Henrietta Hankin Library offers a family program that encourages reading aloud to children ages birth through sixth grade. Participating families can earn a free book as well as a raffle ticket for the awesome grand prize.
Registration is available either online or by visiting the Youth Services desk. Each registered family also receives a goodie bag filled with treats to enjoy while cuddling up and reading together!
