Early Reading Builds Success

You may be sick and tired of reading “Good Night, Moon” to your toddler for what seems like the hundredth time, but rest assured that your effort is making a difference. Studies show that toddlers whose parents read to them often will be successful later in school, said Cindy Romick, children’s manager at the Findlay Hancock County Public Library. And now, thanks to a new program at the library, your child can be doubly rewarded for all the reading you do together. Register with the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the library and your child will receive a small prize for every 100 books you read to him or her. When you reach the 1,000 book goal, your child will receive a certificate and a new children’s book.
