It’s fall, and along with the brilliant autumn colors and tailgating comes one of the premier State Library events — Kansas Reads to Preschoolers!
The week before Thanksgiving — when many of us look forward to sitting down to big dinners, sitting and watching ball games, or sitting around visiting with friends and family — the Kansas Center for the Book encourages adults and youngsters to get up off the sofa and discuss fitness! This is the theme of the fifth annual Kansas Reads to Preschoolers. The book selected is Wiggle by Doreen Cronin.
The excitement is building as preschooler week approaches. Three sponsors and over a half dozen partners are joining to make the 2009 Kansas Reads to Preschoolers event the biggest and best ever. In 2008, over 22,000 Kansas kids were read to as reported by only public libraries and schools. It has been estimated that as many as 50,000 children will hear Wiggle and other books read to them in 2009. The evaluation form on the web page is the only way we have to know how close to this estimate we come, so please complete the form.
So dance, jump, and read Wiggle with your preschoolers November 15-21, 2009! It’s all about reading to young children!
