Preschooler Super Reader Club Gives Children a Huge Advantage
Give your child the added benefit of Mt. Sterling Public Library’s initiative to promote early literacy. It is AVAILABLE ALL YEAR, due to its popularity. The “Super Reader Club” is for those interested in participating with their child to complete a list of 100 picture books that are recommended for children to read or have read to them before starting kindergarten. Participants may pick up the list at the library anytime. Staff will help parents find the books. Once the hundred books are read, the parents turn in the list, and the child receives their Super Reading Club trophy, certificate of completion, and photo in the paper! One hundred books may sound daunting, especially to busy parents. However, most picture books may be read in ten minutes or less. This program is a great opportunity to introduce preschoolers to reading, and to enjoy some of the best picture books ever. This program has proven to make children excited to read by rewarding their accomplishment.
Special thanks to the Mt. Sterling Friends of the Library for purchasing nearly $400 of the books to complete the collection and make these books readily available to our community.
