Kids Read for Fun!

Parents make reading a fun part of your child’s daily routine!  Help them learn to read for the pure enjoyment of reading! Your child may even discover a favorite genre or author.

Visit Kids.gov for a wide range of reading resources for kids in grades K-5 and grades 6-8. You’ll find many classic books available online, can review booklists on various subjects, and may wish to locate a public library near you to find reading programs and borrow—rather than buy—books.

Great reading resources:

Rosenberg Library: http://www.rosenberg-library.org/

Reading Rockets: http:/www.readingrockets.org/

Smart Family Literacy: http://www.smartfamilyliteracy.org/

American Library Association: http://www.ala.org/

This event is dedicated to children and their opportunity to participate in Galveston Island's annual Mardi Gras event.
