There's no excuse to be bored over the winter holiday break: stop by your library and pick up a Winter Bingo card for your child.
Complete five activities in a row, and bring the card back to the library anytime between December 18 and January 31 to receive a free book. There is a card for children in grades K-5, and one for you to do with your younger children.
Children can “Listen to a story” or “Read about your favorite thing,” “Make someone laugh,” or “Bring a friend to the library,” “Dance” or “Play outside.” Activities for you to do with your baby or preschooler include “Use a recipe to make a snack,” and “Ask your child to turn the page.” There is plenty to choose from, so everyone can be a winner.
As a special kick off event for Winter Bingo, children's book author Mitali Perkins will talk about her books, writing, and life between cultures, at the Dimond Branch library on Thursday December 11th, at 10:30am. Recommended for upper grade Elementary and tweens.
