Love Of Reading At Age 2
January 26, 2022 | View PDF
Scotty Anderson is almost 3 and loves to read around 10 books a day. He loves all books, but some of his favorites are Curious George, Llama Llama Misses Mama, Little Blue Truck, Night Animals, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Scotty also likes to count items in the book and recite the parts he knows. Scotty is the son of Ryan and Ashlea Anderson, Sidney.
To encourage a love of reading 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!
