National Children’s Book Week

The third week in November is National Children’s Book Week. Plan to visit your local library on this week. Most libraries will have displays and programs to get your children excited about reading. One might think that taking a non-reading pre-schooler or even a toddler to the library is not productive. Many experts say that an early introduction to books is great way to stimulate a child’s mind and enhance a love of reading later in life. Besides, every child loves to see brightly colored pictures and hear a story in an animated voice. When my daughter-in-law lived in Vermont and throughout the long cold winters there, she took her toddler to “Story-Time” at the local library. It’s a great place to discover new books and mingle with other parents.
