I love books, so I'm all for getting kids to read early! Tomorrow (September 15th), all Bozeman Public School first grade students will each get a copy of the book Cookies – Bite-Size Life Lessons, written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Jane Dyer. A beautifully-illustrated hard-cover book that will teach kids valuable life-lessons, it's a gift from the Links to Literacy Program. The hope is that kids and parents will read the book together.

Then, on Friday, September 29th from 2:30-4 p.m., The Bozeman Public Library will host first grade students and their friends and families to participate in book activity stations and other fun events. A book is a gift you can open again and again!
