We here at Shaw Library hope you are having a super summer, and that you took the time to enjoy books with your little one during the break. Children who read over the summer not only maintain their reading levels, but learn to read for enjoyment. Now is the time to bring your child in to pick a out a book of their choosing, before homework starts to encroach on precious free time. The freedom to follow their own interests and tastes on books is such a powerful motivator, leading to a lifetime of reading.
We love our babies. We see hundreds of parents, caregivers and children a week at Watha T. Daniel, and we see a lot of people bringing children to every program we offer. While that seems like a great way to spend the day, it may not be the right thing for your child.
