The Belden Bookworms summer reading program for 2018 has begun at the Essex Library. We will again help children track their summer reading on a special chart with a sticker for each book read. Incentives to continue summer reading will be offered, dependent upon the child’s age and reading level.
To verify a book has been read, children will be asked about their favorite part of each book. For our youngest readers, picture books and being read to will count as well. Good listening, learning from examining pictures, and reading comprehension are all parts of literacy.
Hillary or the volunteer at the desk will ask kids about the books they read (and add stickers to the chart with them). When kids have 10 stickers on the chart, they will earn a prize!
We hope to have a lot of active bookworms this year!
