When Lingo isn’t teaching kids to read, the famous Reading Kingdom owl can sometimes be found surfing the web looking for great websites related to education and family. This week’s site Lingo likes is The Center for the book in the Library of Congress. Here’s more about them from their website:
“Starting in 1984, the Center for the Book in the Library began to establish affiliate centers in the 50 states. Today, there is a State Center for the Book in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. These Center for the Book affiliates carry out the national Center’s mission in their local areas, sponsor programs that highlight their area’s literary heritage and call attention to the importance of books, reading, literacy and libraries. Affiliates must submit an application to become part of — and retain — their Center for the Book status, which is renewable for a three-year period. The Center for the Book has established Guidelines for establishing affiliates and for programming activities. The State Centers gather annually at the Library of Congress for an Idea Exchange Day.”
Now that we’ve finished sharing this great educational website, Lingo is off on another adventure through the Reading Kingdom and beyond! Click here for a free 30 day trial of our reading website for kids that is teaching to read up to a third grade reading level. We’ll see you soon!
“My daughter was struggling to learn how to read. At the end of first grade she was far behind and losing self-confidence. She found success with the Reading Kingdom which has helped her to quickly catch up. The stories really captured her interest and, as she started to read more fluently, she wanted to read more.” — Dori Walton, parent
