Library Lauds Readkiddoread

Popular website can help parents find books for their children. Library staff thinks it complements summer reading program.

Readkiddoread may be new to Patch, but it is no stranger to the staff at the .

As Patch begins a summer reading program today featuring this popular website for children’s books as well as literature for young people in their teens, the Library was happy to hear about it as it gears up for its own summer reading program starting June 23.

“It’s a great place to find a new book,” Meg Anthony, the head of youth services at the library, said of Readkiddoread. “It helps parents to find a book in the same category so their children can keep reading the books they like. It helps kids get the books they love.”

Deerfield’s own summer reading program runs from June 23 through August 11, according to Anthony. Not limited to children, people will tailor their own reading list based on their schedule and interests. There are prizes.

“Anyone who completes their list will get a free book,” Anthony said. People will also get coupons donated by local businesses for free goods and services. “It could be something like free fries.”\

Patch has already started a list from Readkiddoread. Take a look at the appropriate choices, pick a book, let us know what you think or list a different book you would like so share. The four stories about children’s reading lists are below:
