Activities & Reading for Children

Welcome to the Kids' Corner!

Facts about Reading

Read aloud 20 minutes a day to aid mental growth and success later in life. Three-year-olds love to chatter to themselves. Encourage their storytelling by placing books within their reach around the house. Try books like:

  • Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle
  • No, David by David Shannon
