READ from the START (RFTS)
September 21, 2010
Many of us were raised learning that the proper way to read a children’s picture book is from start to finish, and then you’re done. READ from the START (RFTS) turns that assumption on its ear, and shows parents and caregivers how to interact with the books and the children listening to them in a whole new way. This is a free program sponsored by the Missouri Humanities Council. Parents and caregivers who attend two sessions (1 ½ hours each), not only learn valuable techniques for sharing books with their children, but also get a set of eight books. Book titles are: Goodnight Moon, A Chair for my Mother, Gregory the Terrible Eater, Mouse Count, Black on White, The Snowy Day, and Where the Wild Things Are. Four employees from the Mid-Continent Public Library System attended a workshop recently for the purpose of learning how to facilitate this program!
