Studies have shown that books contain many words children are unlikely to encounter regularly in spoken language and contain 50% more rare words than primetime TV or even college students’ conversations. So grab and book and get reading to your kids today! Here are a few places you can find a free book - or five!
- Imagination Library: Imagination Library mails Racine County children under age five one book every month for FREE! The first book arrives approximately 90 days after the child is registered. Register today here.
