It's Kansas Reads to Preschoolers Month. All month long, we're celebrating the importance of stories in preschoolers' lives as a necessary, and fun, pre-literacy activity. This year we're featuring the beautiful book Time for Bed by Mem Fox. If you join us, you'll get a free book, a fun storywalk, and a chance to win a gift card to The Toy Store! Here's what we have on tap for you:
Sign up for and complete the following activities for the Kansas Reads to Preschoolers challenge on Beanstack:
- Join us the week of November 1 to hear us read Time for Bed by Mem Fox at all of our storytimes. If you miss an in-person storytime, you can always watch an online storytime from the same week on our Facebook or Youtube.
- Pick up a free copy of Time for Bed at storytime or from the Readers' Theater (while supplies last).
- Read Time for Bed while you walk on Mass Street. We have pages from the book posted in downtown storefront windows. Check the map to get started!
- Challenge yourself and your preschooler to read 100 books this month (Multiple readings of the same book(s) count. We know how it is).
- Check out a book bundle or one of our new-ish Wonderbooks to make sure you hit that 100 book goal.
All of this info can be found in the Beanstack challenge or just ask anyone in the kids' area of the library for more info. Happy reading!
