Parents, did you know that, according to research, reading aloud is the single most important thing you can do to prepare your child for reading and learning?  Make it a goal to read at least fifteen minutes every day to your preschooler. We have lots of great books for you at the library to help you meet your goals and to create lasting memories of stories lovingly shared together.

Author: Michelle Robinson

Review by: Elizabeth, (Seymour) Muehl Public Library

The absurdness of  bathing a wooly mammoth makes this a very funny book! The child attempts steps one to ten, very fun!

Title: Snowy, Blowy Winter

Author: Bob Raczka

Review by: Elizabeth, (Seymour) Muehl Public Library

This book has beautiful pictures of the activities of winter, inside and outside. Toward the end is a cute reference to the groundhog and the joy felt with the news that there is still six more weeks of winter!
