Jump on board! The RAFT is heading to the jungle! Don’t miss out on your chance to earn a free book, try to win a DVD, and go on a treasure hunt! You’ll get all this if your family participates in our RAFT program.
What is RAFT? It stands for Reading Aloud Family Time. If your family reads 3 chapter books together, you will earn a hardback copy of The Jungle Book AND a chance to win Disney’s DVD The Jungle Book! Your family also gets to hang a monkey on the vines of our jungle tree! Be sure to finish a second list, and join us in the jungle for a wild treasure hunt around the library! Each child will receive their very own treasure chest.
If you’re worried that your children are too young to listen to chapter books, we have very easy chapter books displayed under our huge jungle tree. Some of these books are just as easy as picture books (and still include wonderful, colorful pictures.) We hope that RAFT will encourage families to spend time together and foster a love of reading in children. I know how much my love of reading started when my mother read to me and took me to the library.
RAFT ends on March 31, 2011 (There’s still plenty of time to read). Sign up at the branch or online. Once your family reads 3 chapter books, simply come into the library and let us know. We hope to see you soon! And I know you’ll love the jungle tree house I created just for you!
