Ready to Read!
Free program gets kids into stories
Jennifer Fehr, FVRL Abbotsford
anuary 27 is Family Literacy Day in Canada – it highlights the significance of reading and engaging in literacy activities as a family and Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) invites you to celebrate the day and beyond! This year FVRL has a new literacy program – 1000 Stories Before Kindergarten for families with preschoolers. Register your child for the free program by visiting any FVRL location!
FVRL's early literacy program encourages families to share
stories with their preschooler before they enter kindergarten. "Our
innovative, self-paced program helps parents jumpstart their child's
literacy skills in the first years of life," says Heather Scoular,
Director of Customer Experience at FVRL. "It is well documented in both
the learning and medical communities that children's early experiences
with books and reading help prepare them for school and set them up for
success in later life."
