Activities to Bring Raising Readers Books to Life

Reading aloud is one of the best ways parents can help their children develop a love of books and reading. There are even more ways books can be enjoyed and explored together, like using these companion activities for Raising Readers’ books, which help parents and caregivers make the most of the book sharing experience.

Use the search feature to find engaging activities for a book you already own. Or, find a title that appeals to you and borrow the book from your local library. The activities can be used in group settings by childcare providers, libraries, and preschools. Parents will also find helpful and fun activities to do with their children at home.  We will continue to create activities for additional Raising Readers books. Watch this page for updates as they become available.

Special thanks to the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, the Maine State Library, and the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development for the development of these companion activities and for their continued partnership.
