Every Child Ready to Read workshops

Every Child Ready to Read Family Workshops will be held Wednesday, Oct. 4, 11, & 15.  This is a program that involves young children (ages birth to 6) and their parents/ caregivers in learning the early literacy skills that help to prepare children for reading success in school.

Each Wednesday, a different early literacy skill will be highlighted.  Parents will:

  • Have a chance to practice the skill with their child.
  • Take home a book to keep and read with their child.
  • Learn fun interactive activities and practical tips to use at home.

By the end of the session, each family will have received great books, a book bag, a variety of storytime materials, and great information to help prepare their children for school!   REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED:  Forms are available at the  library.

AF Library Hosts Books for Boys Event October 12th

Registration is now open for the father-son book group, Books for Boys, hosted by the American Falls Library on October 12th at 7 pm.

Boys ages 8-12 and their father, or another caring adult, are invited to participate in a lively book discussion, share adventure, and meet new friends. Refreshments will be served.  Registration forms and copies of the book are available at the library front desk.  Participants must register by Oct. 5th.

The group will discuss “Crispin: The Cross of Lead” by Avi

In fourteenth-century England a nameless thirteen-year-old orphaned peasant boy is accused of a crime he did not commit.  He is declared a “wolf’s head,” meaning that anyone can kill him on sight.  He learns from the village priest that his parents’ origins, and fates, might be more complex than he ever imagined. To remain alive the boy must flee his tiny village.  Crispin finds freedom and friendship on his frantic flight across 14th-century England.

Participating in a book club can be a rewarding experience for parents and children.  Sharing quality time with each other through reading provides the opportunity for parents to develop a true bond with their children by sharing ideas about the books’ contents and messages.  They also have the opportunity to hear ideas and opinions of their peers.
