Early Literacy Tip – September 2020

Encourage your older children to read to younger children. 

Help yourself out and encourage sibling bonding time by having them share stories with each other. 

If you have a toddler and an older child who is learning to read, utilize our Leveled Readers collection to help everyone love reading! Our level 1 readers are the perfect length for wiggly toddlers to sit through. At the same time, they are just right for a new reader with short words and sentences. 

New readers can practice building their confidence, young children can enjoy a story, and everyone gets some individual time with each other. 

Ask a librarian to show you where our Leveled Reader collection is the next time you visit the library!
