Reading to your child from the very first months of their life to their toddler years to preschool and beyond is truly one of the most important things you can do to help your child’s future success. Reading to your baby every day helps their brain to develop greater capacity and connections than children who are not read to.
Dolly Parton knows how important reading to youngsters is! She started her Dollywood Foundation to help all children have books at home, books filled with words, pictures, exciting stories, books ready for caring adults to read to a child, snuggling on the couch. First 5 Sierra together with The Sierra Schools Foundation, have partnered with the Dollywood Foundation to bring Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Program to the youngest children of Sierra County! The Imagination Library Program is a book program for children under 5 years old – register your baby, toddler or preschooler and Dolly will send them one new book a month, chosen just for their age, until their 5th birthday. The Imagination Library Program is sponsored by First 5 Sierra and The Sierra Schools Foundation and the books come at no cost to families!
If you have a child under the age of 5, come pick up a registration form on the door of the
First 5 Sierra office, 701 Main Street, Loyalton, (next to the Pharmacy), and register your child to begin receiving books from Dolly! Curious? Call us at First 5 Sierra at 993-4884.
