Reading, Talking, Singing, and Playing with your child everyday are simple but powerful activities that prepare your young child to be ready to learn how to read. Reading together is a beautiful bonding activity and it creates a safe and cozy place for enjoying the magic of picture books.
Timberland Regional library and Nikki McClure, local artist and children’s book author, have teamed up to create Grow a Reader, an early learning reading engagement activity for you and the young children in your life. It’s a beautiful keepsake piece containing Nikki’s artwork, where you can track the favorite books you share with your child from infancy to Kindergarten. Pick up one at any TRL library; and while you’re at it, get your child their first library card with a matching design.
