Literacy for Little Ones: Preschool Story Time at Bettendorf Library

Image result for bettendorf library preschoolResearch shows children begin literacy development from birth. The more you read to your child, the more exposure to literacy they get and the more successful they will be in their literacy development when they enter school either at the Preschool and/ or Kindergarten age.

Audio books, story books, newspaper articles, comics, and magazines – whatever you read, it helps in that literacy development. Even the captions on our children’s programming have some influence. And our local libraries only want to help parents encourage this.

Every week, the Bettendorf Public library offers a preschool story time in their Junior League Story Room, geared at the average preschool age group (3 to 5 years of age) filled with songs, puppets, rhymes and pure joy. Come and join in the fun every Tuesday at 10 AM. The program lasts 30 minutes.
