to Preschoolers is an annual event that promotes reading to all Kansas children
from birth through age five. Through the statewide program, parents, librarians
and caregivers are encouraged to read the chosen title during November.
The selected title for this year is I Like Myself! by Karen
Beaumont. I Like Myself! will be the subject of storytimes and other
special activities through the month. Visit the State
Library's KRPS page, and click on the pink Librarian Resources button, for
related promotional materials, a press release, and library ideas.
