Love to Read Campaign
Every child needs a library card
Reading is fundamental to your child's education. Reading develops the mind, enlarges the vocabulary, and fuels imagination and creativity. Through reading, your child can explore the world!
Frequently Asked Questions
- Why is it so important for our kids to read at least 20 minutes a day?
At this rate, children would have read at least 1.8 million words since Kindergarten and for at least 851 hours. These numbers will give our kids a better chance at understanding their grade level work along with increasing their ability to pass standardized tests.
- How can I find out which words my child should know by the end of each grade level: K-6?
Those are called "sight words" and our kids should be able to recognize certain words by sight at the end of each grade level when they are mastering reading. Visit this resource for more information on sight words by section for grades K-5.
- Why is it so important for our kids to read on grade level by the 4th grade?
Statistics say that a child not reading on their grade level by the 4th grade is more than likely to drop out of school than those who are reading on grade level.
- Is it ever too late to get my child on track to reading on grade level (even after the 4th grade)?
It is NEVER too late and this is why your fellow parents have this campaign for library cards because finding books your child LOVES can bring JOY to reading for all kids.
