Research has proven that the future success in reading is dependent on the "lap" time a child has before they are 5 years old. Recommended amount of time reading with an adult is 1,000 hours.
We would like to invite you and your child to become a part of our Birthday Book Club at Barbers Hill Early Childhood Center. This is a great way for parents, grandparents and friends to honor a special student by donating a book to the library on his or her birthday. The donation for a birthday book is $15.00.
We have a special selection of new books in the library from which you or the student may choose. A bookplate with the child’s name will be permanently placed in the front of the book. Your child will be the first to check out the book from the library and may enjoy it for up to two weeks before returning it to the library for other children to check out. This is a very personal way to honor your child on his or her birthday and also help our school to add wonderful, new books to our library.
I Love Animals
A charming picture book filled with a small child's joyous love for all the animals on her farm. Large, bold illustrations and a clear text fairly explode with exuberance." --School Library Journal Do you love animals, too? Flora McDonnell's exuberant salute to our favorite beasts--a gallant dog, two genial ducks, an adoring ewe and her rowdy lamb, among many others--captures their characters in large, brilliant portraits. Perfect for sharing with several children or just one, I LOVE ANIMALS is as much fun as a visit to a real farm.
