Loathes reading and protests vehemently when he has to read a book, claiming that books are stupid and boring”), then learn 12 activities that you can do with your child to get them interested in reading.

Early Literacy at the Buda Public Library

March 21, 2009

Today we kicked off our Ready to Read workshop series to a small but enthusiastic group of parents, grandparents and child care providers – all eager to learn the latest and greatest research regarding developing young minds.

Ready to Read formed out of a partnership forged between the Buda Public Library with the Central Texas Library System with the intention of promoting Early Literacy.

The first workshop in the series focused on newborns through 2 year olds.  Our next workshop is scheduled for April 4 from 10:30 to noon and will focus on 2 and 3 year olds.  For those parents who need to bring children, a literacy rich storytime will be provided in the children’s area.

Did you know that babies come into the world with 100 billion disconnected brain cells?  Postitive interactions with care givers help children’s brain cells make those vital connections.

Come to the workshop so your child will be Ready to Read upon entering school.
