Share the fun of reading with your children ages 3-5 years. Children and their caregivers will explore stories and activities to encourage children to develop a lifelong love of reading and learning. These 30-to-40-minute programs are designed to promote language and listening skills, expand children’s imaginations and arouse their curiosity about the world around them. Class groups and daycares are welcome at these sessions. No children under 2 years of age are permitted unless attending with a sibling or class group.
