Have you ever tried to guess how many pieces of pasta were in a bag, or how many pieces of cereal fell into your bowl? Our ability to estimate amounts like this is based on number sense, intuitive understanding of numbers and amounts.

This summer, libraries across the state are offering an innovative summer reading program to young readers. Titled “Fizz, Boom, Read!,” the program supports the development of reading and literacy skills, while also allowing participants to explore the intersection of science and the humanities.

Read on to see what resources are available to you and your children as you support their interests by engaging in your community this summer…
