PA ONE BOOK EVERY YOUNG CHILD 2013
at Tredyffrin Public Library
Since 2006, Pennsylvania (www.paonebook.org) has featured “One Book” to highlight the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers. Tredyffrin Public Library joins this effort to support early literacy through emphasis on the importance of reading early and often to children as well as engaging children in conversation and other activities around books. This year’s selection, The Bus for Us, by Suzanne Bloom captures the imagination through a combination of text and artwork with an engaging transportation theme.
Please join us for the following The Bus for Us events:
*Monday, April 22nd 10:30am Family Story Time (5 years old and under)
Join us in the upstairs large meeting room for stories and special “traveling trunk” games and activities relating to The Bus for Us.
*Tuesday, April 23rd 10:30am Toddler Story Time (16 months to 3 years old)
*Thursday, April 25th 10:30am School Bus Visit!!! (All ages welcome)
Join us outside in the lower parking lot (weather permitting) for a tour of a real school bus! A real Tredyffrin school bus will be “the bus for us” while we enjoy the tour, songs, and stories.
