Brother-Sister Duo Ready To Read In Kindergarten
January 12, 2022 | View PDF
There's no doubt that Lincoln and Rhyan love to read books. If asked their favorites they will give you a list that could fill a newspaper page. Lincoln can already read Cat the Cat and Tip Tip all by himself, while Rhyan loves Fancy Nancy and books about princesses. Even though they love to be outdoors and have many favorite activities, they always take time to read many books every day. Lincoln, 5, and Rhyan, 4, are the children of Daniel Heggem and Jamie Jensen, Sidney.
To encourage a love of reaching in children, the Sidney-Richland County Library is promoting "1,000 Books before Kindergarten", a nationwide program that encourages parents and caregivers to read aloud with their children every day. Research continually shows that children who are read aloud to every day before kindergarten will have higher scores and more success when they begin school. Most importantly, sharing books with children promotes a lifelong love of books and learning.
The theme of the Sidney-Richland County Library program is "The Magic of Reading". Children receive a small prize at each 100-level milestone, and at the end of the program participants earn a certificate and t-shirt for successful completion. This program is free to children ages 0-4 and their families. Stop by the library to sign up today!
