PLS would like to offer children some fun resources to accompany the Little Read theme. Patrons can print off the following activity sheets as an exciting way for children to explore parts of the wild west through word searchs, mad libs, anagrams, coloring, mazes, and more!

While adults and teens read True Grit and participate in discussions about this novel of the Old West, children may participate in the Little Read. The Little Read for 2014 will include book discussion kits of books that follow an aspect of the theme of True Grit. Each kit includes 12 books, book discussion questions, and activities. These items are available to the branch libraries for children's programs in conjunction with the adult Big Read.
They will be available to the general public for check out through the library catalog this summer. Check the online library calendar or contact your hometown library for Little Read programs in your area.
