Babies 0-17 months are invited to attend our story time with their mommy (or daddy!). Although school seems far away for our littlest readers, we want them to be prepared for that time of learning and the time away from mommy and daddy, whether it be in Kindergarten, Preschool, or daycare. We'll also introduce parents to the Ages & Stages Questionnaire as a screening tool.
We will continue to work with parents using the "1000 Books Before Kindergarten" program to encourage and reward reading.
Parents who are interested in the program will be given a list of suggested books and children who participate will be reward with stickers and certificates of achievement.
For some information about why you should participate in "1000 Books Before Kindergarten", read this interview with parents:
