Beginning in 2006, One Book, Every Young Child is a valuable program highlighting the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers and the significance of reading early and often to children as well as engaging them in conversation and other activities around books.
Pennsylvania's One Book Every Young Child 2018 selection is My Cousin Momo, written and illustrated by Zachariah OHora. Throughout the month of April, Berks County Public Libraries will be celebrating with multiple copies of the book available for checkout and book-based activities at the libraries on select dates. Check online for upcoming programs or contact your local library to learn more.
My Cousin Momo
"Momo is coming for a visit, and his cousins are SO excited! But, when Momo appears, the squirrel cousins find that he has interesting dress up clothes, plays games differently and doesn’t want to fly even though he is a flying squirrel. But when they give Momo’s ideas a try, brother and sister squirrel end up making a new friend. When can they all visit together again?."
