Where is bear? from Vernon Area Public Library on Vimeo.

You are your child's first teacher. Even before they go to school, kids are building their reading skills.  Five simple activities you can do together will get you off to the right start: talking, reading, singing, writing and playing.   For library programs designed to build early literacy skills, contact Youth Services at (224) 543-1486.

 

 


The VAPL Youth Services librarians recently enjoyed recording some of our favorite songs, fingerplays, rhymes and read alouds, perfect for sharing.
