Do You Know a 4-Year Old?

OneBook4ColoradoEvery 4-year old in Colorado has a free book waiting for them at the library!

Thanks to a wonderful program called One Book 4 Colorado 70,000 free books will be distributed to 4 year olds all across the state May 6-20th.  The name of this year’s book will be unveiled on May 6th as part of Colorado’s Literacy Week.

This is the second year for One Book 4 Colorado.  Last year’s book was Maybe the Bear Ate It! by Robie Harris.

Studies have proven that pre-schoolers who have access to books and adults who will read to them are much more likely to be ready to learn to read when they start kindergarten.

Reading bedtime stories was a big part of our family’s evening ritual when our kids were little.  I have lots of fun memories of tucking them into bed and reading favorite stories –  sometimes over and over again.  In fact, I think I can still recite some lines from those books by memory.  And of course there were also plenty of tickle fights, blanket forts and stuffed animals to make the books extra fun.

Learning to read comes in different stages for different children.  Now our kids are in high school and college and they read to learn but learning to read was a special time for our family.

Check out One Book 4 Colorado to get all the details and locations.  Or call your local library for details.  And be sure to ask about story time schedules while you are there!
