During February, read any book that has love as the theme, the
word “love” in the title, a book with hearts on the
cover, etc.), and keep track in your reading log. (1000 Books families,
you may keep track of the “love” books in your 1000
Books log — just draw a heart by them). Children who read
the most “love” books in their age category will go
on our top readers board. February is also Black History Month —
check out our books on civil rights and black history on display.
Reading to preschoolers is beneficial for their
brain development and academic success. It is correlated with improved
attention spans and better concentration. Early reading also ignites
the child's creativity and imagination, teaches them sight words
and expands vocabulary. Kids earn a sticker for every 25 books read
and their photo taken for every 100 books read. Pick up a 1,000
Books Before Kindergarten folder today and foster a lifelong love
Ready4K: Text messages to boost your child's learning
Parents of preschoolers, you can now sign up for a new, free texting
service that delivers fun facts and easy tips to your phone. Called
Ready4K, the texting service shows parents how to boost children’s
learning and get them ready for kindergarten. In the last year, the University of Wyoming's Literacy Research Center and Clinic teamed up with Stanford University to develop and research Ready4K to make this service available in Wyoming. Research shows that
receiving these helpful texts can significantly increase children’s
learning. Parents and caregivers with children, ages 3 to 5, are
invited to sign up for the free service, which provides three texts
per week. The service is available in English and Spanish.
