read 1000 books before kindergarten!

Reading aloud to your child is the best way to prepare him or her for Kindergarten. Research shows that kids should be read at least 1000 books from birth to age 5. So where do you find 1000 books to read to your kids? The library is your best bet. Our picture book collection contains several thousand books. Our library book sales are wonderful for adding to your home collection in a very thrifty manner. Children’s books are 25 cents, with some exceptions. Sales are held throughout the year. ***While we’re closed, the Tumblebooks library (above) is a great place to start***
