May through September 2018
As part of Summer Reading at New York Libraries, the State Education Department and myON are partnering to bring thousands of enhanced digital books to children from birth through 8th grade and their families all around the state!
Deep in the cellar, timbers high, (Both hands point down, then up — arms full length.)
Pointed roof up in the sky, (Bring fingertips together over the head.)
Drive the nails in straight and true (Hammer with one fist on the other.)
Build a house for me and you. (Continue to hammer.)
Windows, shining eyes to see, (Circle hands at eyes and `peek` in.)
Doors open wide to welcome me, (Open arms wide.)
Fire glowing, oh, so bright, (`Warm` hands in front of fire, then rub hands together.)
That is HOME on winter`s night. (Hug self as if snug and warm.)
When you visit this website tomorrow there will be two new books for you to enjoy. Visit your local library to take home a copy of this book or click here to find your local public library. Check here to see what books are coming next or look back on what we’ve read so far this year.
With your child, label items in your house. Practice saying the words together.
