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!
This little boy is going to bed (place forefinger in left hand.)
Down on the pillow he lays his head,
Wraps himself in the cover tight. (fold left hand over right forefinger)
This is the way he sleeps all night.
Morning comes he opens his eyes. (blink eyes as if just opening)
Back with a toss the cover flies
Up he jumps, is dressed and away
Ready for work, ready for play. (open left fist and quickly raise right forefinger, then wiggle it and move hand as if walking on its way.)
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.
Help your child make a holiday or winter card for a friend. You could include a photograph, make a snowflake to include in the note, and help your child write a personal greeting.
