Dear West Springfield Parents and Guardians,
Reading is an important part of everyday life, and summer is a great time to read! Challenge your child to read every day. The more our students read, the better readers they will be.
We encourage you to visit the West Springfield Public Library this summer and participate in the many activities offered, especially the summer reading program. The librarians look forward to helping you and your children select books that will be just right for them to read. They are there for you when you need any suggestions for wonderful books that may be of interest to your child.
Students should feel free to select any books that they can read with ease. Use the lists for suggestions only. It is most important that students are reading books and magazines that they enjoy.
Remember, no matter how old your children are, everyone loves to be read to! So read to your child of any age, and check out the terrific audio books that are available now!
We hope you and your family will read many stories this summer and reap all of the wonderful benefits that reading has to offer!
