Read your way through summer!
Everyone knows that summer is a time for fresh air, trips to the beach, sunshine and lots of outdoor time. It’s also a great time to read!
Take advantage of warm days and encourage your child to take a book outside to their favourite spot on the lawn, at the beach or the porch. Visit your local library or borrow books from a friend, but make sure that reading is on your summer “to-do” list!
The Nova Scotia Public Libraries offer great summer reading programs and opportunities for children to strengthen their reading skills. Visit their websites or give them a call to learn more:
