We want to share this exciting piece of news we got from Cashima Pondt at the Bank Street Family Center.
The NYC Imagination Library is an initiative of the NYC Dept. of Education. The goal is to promote the development of emergent literacy and language skills that are important for every child’s success in school by encouraging all NYC parents to read aloud to their children from birth until age five.
Just enroll your preschool child (age 0 to 5 yrs) in the NYC Imagination Library and a new, carefully selected, age-appropriate book will be mailed each month in your child’s name directly to your home. Books will begin arriving at your home six to eight weeks after your registration form has been received, and will continue every month until your child turns five.
Enroll at: www.nycimaginationlibrary.org
Your child will be eligible for this program as long as you live
within the five boroughs of NYC
