Are there library resources for kids who can’t read? Absolutely! You can still practice early literacy skills with your pre-reader. The Kansas State Library promotes “6 by 6,” or six skills that will promote reading by age six:
- Have Fun with Books
- Notice Print All Around You
- Talk, Talk, Talk
- Look for Letters Everywhere
- Tell Stories About Everything
- Take Time to Rhyme
The Hesston Public Library has plenty of books, DVDs, and even toys and activity kits* to help you and your child practice these skills. You can also join us for story time at 10:30 on Wednesday mornings during the school year.
*Ask staff at the desk about borrowing our 6×6 early literacy kits or storypack backpacks.
