Children's Reading Foundation at the Kingston Country Fair on October 1
The Children's Reading Foundation of the Tennessee Valley will participate in the Kingston Country Fair on October 1. The Reading Foundation will hold a free drawings in which children will win children's books and the top winner will receive a $50.00 U.S. Savings Bond.
"Because you want the best for your child," said Allen Lutz to a group of parents, "we invite you to begin a parenting practice which will benefit your child the rest of his or her life—reading aloud together 20 minutes a day from birth through elementary school. Children whose parents read with them learn to read early and well. It's as simple as that!"
At the Kingston Fair, children five years and younger will be able to enter into the free drawing. "Of course, the parents will have to enter their child into the contest," said Lutz. We will have handouts about the importance of reading to their child 20 minutes a day."
Parents will also have the opportunity to enroll their children into Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. The Imagination Library will send children, under age 5, a book every month. The books are free. All the parent has to do is read to their children.
