Raising Young Readers

Last night at our PTA meeting, Georgia Collier gave a wonderful presentation on supporting readers from birth to into their independent years.  One of the most amazing pieces of information that she shared was about the Wee Read program.  This program is made possible through the Ferst Foundation, United Way Success by 6, and the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.  Any child in Clarke County below the age of 5 can register.  Registered children receive one book per month that is age appropriate.  These books build a wonderful home library before children even begin school.  In the media center, we have a table setup with information and forms to fill out if you want to register your child.  I hope you will all take advantage of this great program.  I know I’m signing up my child as soon as she arrives in December!
