What's Happening

We have an amazing new item available for checkout at our library! Wonderbooks, an all-in-one kids audio. We have picture books and short chapter books.

Audio versions of short chapter books are a great tool for kids with a reading level that doesn't match their interest level. Wonderbooks provide a bridge for kids to see the written words and follow along in the story with audio. Also awesome for reluctant readers, ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning challenges.

Literacy Tip of the Week: Just like adults, kiddos like to read what they are interested in. . . a great way to get your kiddo to read for fun is reading what interests them! Airplanes, Pokemon, dragons, dogs, whatever it may be.

It's the anniversary of the first Model T built by Henry Ford's Company! I personally love cars, right after books of course! Model T's are the coolest, however, the first thing my mom brain thinks of when I see a Model T is how LONG trips would take when your top speed is 45mph. Also, the maintainance. First generation of anything always has bugs and extra maintenance until the kinks are worked out. 

At today's storytime we will look at the Model T's, follow a very inventive little boy and go on a long road trip.

Literacy Tip of the Week: Read some humorous stories to your kiddo. Puns and dad jokes help build literacy skills and a deeper understanding of our language. Additionally, kids love slapstick comedy and mishap. These themed books are certain to keep a kiddo's attention.

Storytime today will be about siblings! Many of us have a brother or sister. These are fantastic stories many of our kiddos can relate to. 

Early literacy tip of the Week: Have your kiddos read to each other! If they are too young, pretending to read to each other and make up a story to go along with the illustrations can be great fun too!
