📖 Weekly Story Times in Douglas County

at Douglas County Libraries & local businesses in Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, & Parker

By Kyrie Collins, Macaroni KID Highlands Ranch-Parker-Castle Rock-Lone Tree Publisher January 1, 2022

When it comes to teaching kids to love reading, it may be hard to believe that doing something as simple as reading aloud can matter so much.

By reading to children at a very young age, parents demonstrate that reading is important. Reading, talking, and sharing your thoughts about books encourages children to think and promotes vocabulary development and higher-level thinking.
