>Get out of the house and go to the public library.
Take a look around. Libraries often have events for children that are free or cheap. As well, they have magazines, computers, music, stories on tape, movies, and of course, lots of books! If you can’t find what you want or need ask a librarian to help you out.
Make this a family activity: Take the whole family and have each person sign out a book, read it, and then share what it was about with the rest of the family.
This activity promotes community, sharing, and literary skills.
