Shared reading is the best way to help babies, toddlers, and preschoolers develop the important early literacy skills they need to learn how to read independently later on. The more books children ages 0–5 hear, the more prepared they will be to learn how to read. It’s never too early to start.
• Register here or in Kids’ World beginning September 8.

• Drop by Kids’ World to check in and receive prizes.
• The library will host a 1000 Books Celebration in May 2015, but the program doesn’t end until your child enters kindergarten.
