Each age group packet also contains a suggested reading list from NERL’s card catalog that is specific to that age group. And don’t worry, if your child is on the cusp of two groups or one of the other sets or craft projects sounds interesting, you are welcome to ask for multiple packets!  So stop by a branch of Northeast Regional Library soon to get your October packets.
