Foster a Love of Reading

Spread the love

Summer break is here and the library’s Summer Discovery program has begun! And who doesn’t love a good ol’ game of bingo?! This year, I’m choosing to fill my bingo blocks by reading in 15-minute increments. Who’s to say that reading some awesome picture books to my toddler doesn’t count towards that? While reading together, my toddler loves to point out when the characters are reading books, or kids are gathered for storytime. Here’s a collection of our favorite books that give a nod to libraries, books, and help develop and foster that love of reading.

Haneen works at the Boardman Library as a Youth Services Librarian. She enjoys preschool story time and getting the kids up and moving during her story time visits. Her secret story time weapon is a bubble machine, because who doesn't love bubbles? Haneen spends her free time reading parenting books (Silence is a Scary Sound– the latest), binge watching tv series, attempting cooking lessons with her toddler and time spent with her husband!
