needs to be read to…..”

Read Alouds

Library Read Alouds for All DayPreschool through Fourth Grade focus on well-known and recognized children’s authors and award winning children’s books! We cover National Award Winners, past and present, as well as State Award Winners. Selections are both fiction and non-fiction. Fiction may include fantasy, realistic fiction, historical fiction, and /or science fiction! Non-fiction may include poetry, folklore, biography, or informational topics! Students are encouraged to be open to authors and genres that are new to them! It is rewarding when a student says “that is a really good book”, or ‘I really like that author”, or “Can I have that book next?” Students grow and develop their own unique preference for the written word! Reading rocks their world!


Reading aloud introduces new words, grammar, and concepts that you may not use during regular talking.

An average children’s picture book may have around 500 words. These add up fast!

Reading Rockets

When you hold your child close and look at a book together, he/she will enjoy the snuggling and hearing your voice, as well as the story. Feeling safe and secure with you while looking at a book builds  his/her confidence and love of reading.

Power and Importance of Reading

“It is not enough to simply teach children to read, we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations—something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own”                    Katherine Patterson
