K-2 Reading Club

Read 150 books (or listen to 150 books!) to meet this challenge!

  1. Enroll in the program here!
  2. Visit the Youth page for some Reading List ideas!
  3. Find us on Facebook for more reading club activities, programs, and events!

TADL designed this challenge to assist kindergarten to second-graders with literacy development.  Your child may be able to read some of the recommended books on their own, but some are meant to be read aloud by an adult. The more opportunities you provide for these young readers to have positive reading experiences, the more likely you are to raise a lifelong reader. It’s a great idea to set aside a special reading time.

Read 50 books to meet this challenge!

  1. Enroll in the program here!

TADL designed this challenge to assist third-to-fifth graders with both literacy development and a broadened selection of fiction and non-fiction book choices. It’s a good idea at this age to stick with a designated reading time when you can each enjoy your own book – but leave time at the end to ask each other questions about your reading. If you would like a list of questions to ask about your child’s book just request one at the Youth Services desk!

You can read from our recommended list or choose your own titles. Our list will offer a wide selection of high-quality, irresistible books to build a strong foundation for our leaders of tomorrow.
