Age 0-4


It is never to early to build your child's literacy skills. By starting early, you form the foundation for your child's success later in life. Simple activities involving talking, singing, reading, writing and playing together will help your child. Check off each of the activities you complete. When you have completed ten, bring the log back and select a free book to take home.

Age 5-Grade 3

Determine your own Winter Reading Challenge goal. Whether you keep track of pages, books or time spent reading, use the log to mark your progress. When you are done, come in and select your free book. During the program, drop by the Kids' World Desk to spin our wheel and receive an activity to take home.

Grades 4-6

Challenge yourself to read something new. Pick up a punch card and a token at the Kids' World Desk to get started. Let the Challenge Contraption decide your next book or activity. Complete four challenges to earn a free book!
