While the nights are still chilly and our little ones are cooped up indoors, it’s the perfect time of year to start a family reading tradition. Many of our patrons already read together as a family, frequently stocking up on great reads at the Canton Free Library. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, “children who are read to at home enjoy a substantial advantage over children who are not.” We encourage all of our families to begin this activity, and discover some amazing stories along the way. We have classic and new adventures for families of all ages.
Take a family trip into the past with the Little House on the Prairie series, by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Kids like to compare their modern experiences to Laura’s in this well-known series. For our readers and listeners with shorter attention spans, we have the My First Little House Books series, adaptations of Laura’s stories with colorful illustrations.
