The links to our Reading Activity Sheets below show you

how to use C.A.R. with the free Imagination Library books

BFBMT sends to your child. Just select a book, review the

Reading Activity Sheet, and start having fun reading with

your child!

C.A.R was developed by Washington Learning Systems as a

simple way to have a conversation with your child about a

book. Research shows that using this method expands the

child's language skills, and also teaches an appropriate way

to have a conversation.

BFBMT's simple, fun, inexpensive activities expand your

experiences with your child, and through these interactions,

your child's literacy and school readiness skills are increased

while strengthening family bonds. So click on a book cover,

print a Reading Activity Sheet, pick up an Imagination

Library book, put your child on your lap, and start reading!

Interested in bringing C.A.R. to your community or organization?
