Preloaded Nook® HDs for kids available for check out
Any time is a great time to introduce a new way of enjoying books
to your kids — our preloaded Nook® HDs allow kids to enjoy
old and new favorites in a safe and age appropriate manner. Both
the Pinedale and Big Piney libraries have Nook HDs preloaded with
dozens of ebooks for preschoolers (most with a "read to me"
option), for early readers, and for 3rd graders and up. All Nook
HDs come with parental controls and do not access the Internet or
games — they are just for reading. Just power up and go! Nook
HDs check out for 3 weeks.
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.
