This year’s Idaho Family Reading Week theme is all about animals – “Wild Wonders.” Think wildlife. Think conservation. Think animal adaptations. Think Idaho State Emblems! Maybe you’ll teach kids the importance of pollinators, help them build a bee hotel, and place it in the community. Maybe you’ll feature jobs where people work with animals and then bring in speakers from different careers, like a vet or an animal rescue worker. Maybe you’ll take the WILD About Early Learners Workshop, then use the accompanying guide to teach children about the Idaho state fish, the Cutthroat Trout (see the Wildlife Express State Emblem Magazine, described below). The possibilities are endless and totally up to you and your library staff. Scroll down to “2022 Program Resources” to view tons of ideas and resources gathered by ICfL so your library can offer great literacy-oriented Family Reading Week activities. Registration opens September 15th (see below).
We have some great community partners this year: Idaho Fish & Game and Idaho Association for the Education of Young Children (IAEYC). Read on for details…
