Summer Library Reading for Birth to Preschool

Summer  Library Reading for Birth to Preschool
I recently saw a meme that said, "It takes a library to raise a child." Here is the 2019 reading list for children from birth to preschool from the Association for Library Service to Children. Check out some of these books from your local library! Read every day. The strongest predictor of school success is whether children have their parents read to them every night. Enjoy the close family time!
