Dear Parents,

We are delighted to join First Lady Mary Herman, Maine's Family Literacy Task Force, and the Verizon Foundation in welcoming your child to Kindergarten.

Reading with and to your children daily is the most important thing you can do to ensure your child is off to a good start in school. You know that we love to WRITE books; what you may not know is that we read to our children when they were growing up and now happily read to our grandchildren all the time. Lap time with your child, looking at and talking about the pictures, reading, re-reading, talking about the book, connecting the story to your life when possible, is crucial to getting your child started well in school.

Please, turn off the TV and make a promise to yourself that you will read the enclosed books, and others available at the library and bookstores, with your children often. You'll enjoy this special time and the rewards are lifelong!

Best wishes,

Stephen King Tabitha King
