Take a swing at some baseball-themed reading, singing and playing during “Batter Up,” a free family fun event from 10-11 a.m. Tuesday, July 30, at the Asheboro Public Library.
The event is part of Every Child Ready to Read®, the library’s early childhood literacy effort. It’s aimed at children age 0-5 and their parents/caregivers, but older siblings are welcome, too.
Call 318-6804 or visit the Asheboro library to sign up.
During the event, librarians will provide parents/caregivers with tips about how incorporate five key activities — talking, singing, reading, writing, playing — as they read and interact with their children. Employing these techniques has been shown to build pre-literacy skills that help ensure children will be ready learn to read when they begin school.
Every Child Ready to Read®, developed by the Association for Library Services to Children and the Public Library Association, is based on research about language, early literacy skills and how children learn. The techniques give parents and caregivers simple but powerful ways to help kids develop the language and other skills they need to learn to read.
The library’s ‘Every Child’ initiative was supported by grant funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the federal Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
The library is located at 201 Worth Street in Asheboro.
