Why should your baby participate in the Baby Summer Reading program?
You can help your child prepare to become the best reader he or she can be by

Reading
Talking
Singing
Writing
Playing

These are simple ways you can help your child to build vocabulary,
comprehension, and general knowledge needed to understand books
and stories as they learn to read. This is called Early Literacy.
Research shows the more children know about language and literacy
before they start school, the better equipped they will be to succeed!


Chance Prizes: Use your chance tickets to enter to win these bigger prizes!
