Read For 20

The Minot Public Library and area literacy groups have joined efforts to promote 20 minutes of reading every day. The Minot Public Library, Sara Medalen the 2020 ND Teacher of the year and Main Street Books are teaming up to encourage and to help demonstrate how important it is to read for just 20 minutes a day..

“Having your child read for just 20 minutes a day can drastically improve their test scores and increase their vocabulary,” said Sara Medalen. We agree. As your local community bookstore we encourage getting a book into your child's hands, whether it be from the library or from a local bookstore. Whether it be new or used books are important and so is your child's education. The difference between struggling in school and not can make the difference between struggling in life. Let's all do our part and encourage our kids to pick up a book this summer. Read 20 minutes. Easy peasy. 

Check out some of the great reads below to inspirs your child this summer. Also, we just received a great selection of National Geographic Early Readers. Snakes and penguins aned sharks. We have all the cool stuff that kids really love.
