Program promotes children’s reading


There is magic in books. Through books young children can meet a blue horse, dine with a very hungry caterpillar, find a lost duckling and ride a magical bus.

The Family Storyteller is a family literacy program built upon children’s literature and video tapes, which model parent/child book reading. The workshops are designed for parents and their preschool or beginning reader children, ages 3 to 7.

Parents will learn how to maximize reading with their young children. The emphasis of this program is on modeling carefully selected book reading techniques such as previewing the book, reading with expression, labeling and asking questions.

Families will receive a free book each week and do activities together. A home activity packet will be given to provide ideas and materials to do more activities through the week. The workshops will be from 6 to 7 p.m. each Tuesday from Feb. 25 through April 9 at the Lake Tahoe Branch Library in Zephyr Cove Park. Space is limited. To register call Kay Vibe at (775) 588-4574 or Carol Rapacz at (775) 588-6411.s

The Family Storyteller is a free program offered through the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, Douglas County School District and Douglas County Public Library.
