We are celebrating the state library’s 13th annual Kansas Reads to Preschoolers week, November 12-18.
Storytimes this week will feature the one-book/one-state selection for young children, The Napping House by Audrey Wood with illustrations by Don Wood. This beloved book first published in 1984 has delighted children for many years. It is a silly cumulative tale of a snoring granny, who is joined by a dreaming child, a dozing dog, and so on until the pile reaches far above the bed. The tiniest critter on top starts the ruckus that wakes everyone in reverse, and naptime is over. Children who attend one of the library’s nine storytimes during this week will receive a free copy of The Napping House.
Kansas Reads to Preschoolers highlights the state’s commitment to increasing reading readiness and on-grade reading while promoting reading, literacy and libraries. Help us celebrate by reading to a child this week!
