    Discover the Joy of Reading with Your Child

    Whether it's a nightly bedtime story or a book your child is reading aloud to you, daily reading is the key to helping our students succeed! 

    Students visit the Stony Brook School library every week, have accounts with Raz Kids, and access to thousands of titles in our classrooms. There's really no excuse to NOT be reading. Outside of school, make visits to the North Plainfield Public Library part of your weekly routine. Bring the following lists, and ask a librarian to help you find some these recommended books.

    Grades Pre-K through 2

    Grades 3 through 5

    Why Reading Matters

    The easiest, least expensive and most beneficial way to spend time with your children is through shared reading. According to the Family Literacy Foundation, the many benefits of reading aloud with your children include:

    • Increased self-esteem as children hear a parent or loved one read to them.

    • Stronger communication between parents and children.

    • Children learn to be more imaginative and creative.

    • Children become better readers and listeners.

    • Children learn important lessons from the stories they read and hear.
