The start of a new year is the perfect time to set goals and make positive changes in our lives. While we might be a little biased, we think the perfect new year's resolution is to read more books. Just like any muscle in our body, our brain needs exercise to stay sharp. Reading regularly stimulates cognitive functions, improves memory, and enhances analytical thinking. It also helps boost vocabulary and language skills, which benefits both written and verbal communication. As you immerse yourself in the pages of a book, your mind becomes more engaged, building connections and stimulating creativity.
That's why we are inviting you to join us in a month long reading challenge sponsored by Lerner Publishing to start the year off strong. Explore topics like family, history, and identity while reading Where We Come From, a poetic picture book for all ages written by John Coy, Shannon Gibney, Sun Yung Shin, and Diane Wilson and illustrated by Dion MBD. Log your reading minutes and reflect on your own story — all while earning badges on your virtual bingo card! The top-performing libraries and schools will earn special prizes sponsored by Lerner, including special shoutouts and even signed copies of the book.
