Welcome New Friends


If you are viewing our blog for the first time or for your hundredth time, welcome. We are excited about this new opportunity to reach the parents and children of Cass County to let them know about all of the exciting things the Reading Railroad has going on throughout the year. Since its inception the blog has been used to spread the word about or weekly programs, give reports of how those programs went, tips for packing fun and healthy brown bag lunch ideas, literacy ideas to keep kids active throughout the summer and website suggestions for parents trying to find helpful ways to keep their kids active in literacy.

Throughout the year we hope to continue the blog's regularity and keep it up to date several times a week. It has been a bit easier this summer having two summer interns in the office to take care of such tasks, but as the summer draws to a close it will all be back in the hands of Nikki Reed, the program director. However, she is looking forward to using this valuable resource to reach all of the fans of the Reading Railroad and spread the news of all the good things we are doing.

If you are a first timer, check out the side bar where you will find interactive website suggestions that are good for kids to link up to, as well as childrens book author suggestions. These authors are some of our favorites here at the Reading Railroad and ones your children are sure to enjoy. We update both of these whenever we receive word of something new and exciting. If you know of an author or website we do not have listed, please contact us at nikkireed@verizon.net and let us know. We are always looking for ways to better the literacy experience for the children of Cass County.

With all of this being said, make sure to stop by daily and see what we have going on at the Reading Railroad. It is an exciting time in Cass County as we start to turn over a new leaf in the era of social media. Don't miss the opportunity to be a big part of it by following our blog.

In Reading 20 minutes every day,

  1. Hello,
    I am new to your blog. I don't actually know where Cass County is. I live in Ohio. Your blog caught my eye because I am a kindergarten teacher and I am always looking for new and interesting ideas for my classroom. I look forward to reading more.
