LET'S READ

Reading is a vital activity for children. And what better time to read to them than when it is steamy hot outside! You probably have books at your house that you haven’t read in a long time. So start digging! Enjoy those books again. What about visiting the library? If you haven’t been for a while, this would be a great place to spend some time with your child. Besides the books, your local library is full of activities and things to explore.

Many times parents aren’t sure what books would be good for their child. As they grow it is sometimes hard to keep up. Your librarian is a great resource for ideas if you see she has a few extra minutes. Also, here are a few web sites that offer parents ideas for their children.

So pour yourself and your child a cold glass of lemonade and sit back and read together. It will be some of your best summer memories.
