Kansas Reads to Preschoolers is an annual statewide program sponsored by the State Library of Kansas that promotes reading to all Kansas children from birth through age five. Parents, librarians, and caregivers are encouraged to read the chosen title during a selected week in November.
Each year the Kansas Reads to Preschoolers Committee selects one title for state wide dissemination. Activities, programming ideas, and free materials related to the program are created and shared.
