Next Steps Reading Club Starting on the right path to reading! September 22-November 17, 2014 For children birth to 5 years old. Registration required and space is limited. This autumn, help your little one FALL into reading by joining our early literacy reading program! Our program is a fun, non-competitive way to encourage families with small children to read together. Each child will get a bag containing a reading log, and a fall-themed stamp. For every book read, add a stamp to the log. For every 5 books you read, your child will receive a fall themed-cutout with his or her name on it to hang in the Picture Book Room. Help us decorate for fall by reading! Call 781-769-0200 ext 225 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details and to register! Registration starts September 2.
