Parents using a public library or bookstore may often be overwhelmed by the number of books now available for children. Because reading aloud to children is so important in their language acquisition, we want to help. Our Leading to Reading program presents developmental milestones for parents to watch for as well as age appropriate book suggestions for children birth to age 5.
Each Leading to Reading set includes 61 postcards, color-coded by year, reflecting a wide variety of authors and genres. Full postcard sets and monthly mailing subscriptions may be purchased from the Friends of Seward Library. Families living in Seward County, Nebraska may register to receive cards mailed monthly, free of charge, to match their child’s age. These cards will also include a message about what is happening at the Seward Memorial Library.
