Kids and Libraries

Spread the love

I take my two young children to the library every week. We go to playgroup that’s there, then upstairs to the kid’s section of the library where they play and sometimes help me pick out books to bring home. Although they don’t look at books much there, they will someday and they certainly enjoy reading them at home.

Unfortunately there are LOTS of kids who have never been to a library before they enter school and lots who never go or rarely go. I think this is very sad. Children should be going to a library from toddlerhood on. Books are very important. Most of my readers already know this or they wouldn’t be reading a book blog but on the off chance someone checks out this blog that isn’t a regular reader or maybe they are but their kids aren’t, here are some links to check out for futhur information and help.
