Kansas Reads to Preschoolers

Kansas Reads to Preschoolers is an annual event that promotes reading to all Kansas children from birth through age five. Through the statewide program, parents, librarians, and caregivers are encouraged to read the chosen title during a selected week and month.

The title selected for 2022 was Not a Box by Antoinette Portis.

Inspired by a memory of sitting in a box on her driveway with her sister, Antoinette Portis captures the thrill when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes real—when the imagination takes over inside a cardboard box, and through play, a child is transported to a world where anything is possible. – From author’s website

During the month of November, our Youth Services Librarians read this delightful book to 340 children and 110 adults across 29 classes throughout Franklin County.
