Hungry Young Readers Program

Hungry Young Readers Mini Reading Challenge

Inspired by Eric Carle’s The Hungry Caterpillar, this opportunity allows children six and younger to use reading to turn a caterpillar in to a butterfly. It coincides with both National Library Week and T.V. Turn-Off Week as a fun way to encourage young children and their families to continue creating healthy choices and habits. Each day that you read with your child, you’ll write the names of the book or books you read on a caterpillar segment. Once you have completed five to seven days worth, return them to the library no later than Saturday, April 24th to take home your butterfly!   If you complete SEVEN days, you will be entered in to a special drawing as well. The segments will be attached to the caterpillar in the children’s area. We’ll find out how hungry the caterpillar is! To participate, pick up you packet of segments at the library desk anytime during National Library Week (April 12-17), or at the library’s booth during the No Family Left Inside Event at the High School on Saturday, April 17 from 10-2.
