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 is a family (hold up one hand, fingers spread)
Let’s count them and see,
How many there are,
And who they can be. (count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
This is the mother (touch pointer finger)
Who loves everyone,
And this is the father (touch big finger)
Who is lots of fun.
This is my sister (touch ring finger)
She helps and she plays,
And this is the baby (touch little finger)
He’s growing each day.
But who is this one? (touch thumb)
He’s out there alone,
Why it’s Jackie, the dog,
And he’s chewing a bone. (wiggle thumb.)
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.
Play a game together as a family. If you don’t have a game, make one up!
Visit these links for great videos to share with your child.
