Inspire Kids to Read!



                We know a "love" of reading
holds no child back! 
 
The ideas (above) are great ways
we can all involve kids
with books:  fun, varied, and

are probably different than what
you & they might expect. 


Get excited about literature & learning!

After all, it's your relationship with
a youngster that opens the the door to
the wide, wide world of books.
