    Fun Family Literacy Suggestions:

    • Visit the local library
      If your child doesn’t have his/her own card yet, sign up at one of the public libraries. Look through the different sections together, and see where your child is most likely to find enjoyable books. You can access all Bucks County Free Public Libraries here: Bucks County Free Library

    • Visit your local bookstore
      Check the schedule. Often, there are author visits, story times, and other fun activities taking place there. Start reading a series together; it is a fun way to explore new characters and enjoy adventures together. Embark on your reading journey at the Newtown Bookshop store or website: Newtown Bookshop
