           This is a list of suggested books for reading. They are not requirements.
        We hope it will serve as a guide when you visit the Chesterfield Public Libraries.
              The list covers a wide variety of reading levels and interest areas.

                                       Tips for Reading
        What is the best thing you can do to help your child learn? Read! Read! Read!

All reading is valuable. Pick some books that are fun for both of you and read as much as
you can, as often as you can. Read books over and over as much as you like!
* Set aside time each day for quiet reading.
* Let your child see you reading your own books.
* Have your child choose some books on their own along with books you recommend.
* Check out books on tape or CD for long trips.
* Read side by side with your child so that you can look at the words together.
* Visit the library regularly.
