Kensington Library News

Kansas Reads to Preschoolers in November is a statewide initiative encouraging early childhood literacy. Each year, one age-appropriate book is selected for storytime in libraries, preschools, childcare centers and homes throughout Kansas. Ten Pigs: An Epic Bath Adventure, by Derek Anderson, was this year’s title.

Mrs. Barnes enjoyed visiting the children at Little Britches Daycare, Kelly’s ‘Luv Ur Kids’ Daycare, and the preschoolers at First St. John’s Preschool all of Kensington. The daycare children had coloring pages after listening to the story while Ms. Stacy’s preschool classes got to go on a fun storywalk. All 45 children who enjoyed Ten Pigs during the month of November, received special piggy cookies made by Becky Lanier.

Topeka — The State Library’s 14th annual one-book/one-state reading initiative, Kansas Reads to Preschoolers, highlights the importance of reading to children with a goal that every Kansas child from birth to age five is read to during the week of November 11-17, although libraries may have events throughout the month. The State Library of Kansas is committed to increasing reading readiness and on-grade reading while promoting reading, literacy and libraries.
