Congratulations to Stella Sudbeck, daughter of Doug and Rachelle Sudbeck, Hartington who just completed the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program.
Stella was awarded a medal and certificate, a prize and a free book from the library for her reading accomplishment. Stella is regular visitor who loves books about ponies, her favorite book to checkout is ”Every Cowgirl Goes to School.” She also likes to come to the library because, “there are some many books you get to take ho…me and read.” Stella will be attending kindergarten at HNPS in the fall of 2017.
This program was launched to instill the love of reading, get children ready for school, and to encourage more parent/child visits to the library. Books are logged and prizes are awarded along the way. One of the best ways to encourage pre-reading skills is to spend time sharing books each and every day! Reading provides a solid foundation, a key to school and learning success. When you, as a parent, read to your child, you help him or her develop the skills they will need to learn to read by themselves.
