READING, A KEY TO LEARNING
a special and fun time
Being read to, and talking about a variety of fictional stories and non-fiction (information) books on different themes, will help your child:
• Learn new things
• Expand knowledge about everyday experiences
• Build a vocabulary and other key early language skills
• Appreciate different holidays and different traditions.
These achievements are important ingredients to develop a love for learning and for future school success.
Looking for books to read to your child?
Browse through the booklets below. Each booklet is on a different theme. The titles included in a booklet are samples of some of the many books on that theme
which are available to borrow for free from a Westchester library.
Suggestion: Each time you visit the library, print and take a copy of a booklet with
you that has titles of interest to show to the children’s librarian. The librarian will
be able to help you find specific books or similar books your child might enjoy.
Feel free to ask!
Note: To borrow books, you will need your library card. If you do not have a card,
you can apply for one at your local library. You may be asked to show two forms
of ID that have your name and address (such as a driver’s license, a utility bill, an
envelope with a postmark, etc.). With a card issued by your local library, you can
borrow books from any of the 38 libraries in Westchester County, access online
library materials and resources, including books, movies, music, and more.
