Kansas Reads to Preschoolers

The Kansas Center for the Book at the State Library of Kansas is once again proud to promote the importance of reading to Kansas preschoolers and other youth. Kansas Reads to Preschoolers week is November 15-21, 2009 and this year’s book, written by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Scott Menchin, is Wiggle. Wiggle highlights this year's theme- fitness. On the Kansas Reads to Preschoolers website you can find out ways to encourage preschoolers to love literacy and to keep healthy and mobile.
