Kansas Reads to Preschoolers is an annual event that promotes the importance of reading to very young children in our state.  During the week of November 13 - 19 preschoolers throughout the city of Olathe and across the entire state of Kansas are being read the same book:  Chicka Chicka Boom Boom written by Kansas native Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault and illustrated by Lois Ehlert.  This week Olathe Public Library staff and volunteers have been reading this book to children in our library storytimes and at many daycares throughout the Olathe area.  If your child missed out, we encourage you to read to your child at home during this special week.  Of course, we encourage you to read to your children anytime!  There are many great books just waiting to be read at your local library.
