Summer Reading!

Now that Memorial Day Weekend is here, summer has unofficially begun. For many of us, summer is synonymous with reading--as in beach reads. Keep that loving book feeling, and pass it on to your young child.

One way to encourage summer reading is to find out what preschool programs are available at your local library. Call, consult the website, or better yet, visit your library to check out the programs that are designed for preschoolers. Trained children's librarians will choose books that will engage and entertain very young children. These events are free, air-conditioned, and will be a fun activity for you, or another caretaker, and your preschooler.

Summer = Reading. Pass it on.

What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
