Summer Reading Programs

Looking to get wild with your summer reading?

Get outside and read with Pratt in August!

We’re proud to support New Milford Public Schools and the New Milford Public Library’s efforts to keep everyone reading this summer.

Barnyard Book Buddies

For kids entering grades 1-3

Our animals love company and a good book. You can choose books from our collection or bring your favorites from home to read to our animals! Can you read to all the animals (and maybe a few special trees and plants too)? We’ll help you keep track and if you can read to them all, there’s a special Pratt prize waiting for you!

Flexible dates and times will be set up for the month of August.


The Adventurer’s Book Club

For students entering grades 4-8

Choose a just right, action-packed tale of survival from our selections. Set and meet reading goals for each week

with the help of a certified teacher. Then, get hands on experience learning the survival skills from your book in real

life at Pratt!

Adventurer’s Book Club will meet on Tuesdays in August from 4:30-6:00.



These are free programs but space is limited. Pre-registration required. Follow the link below to register before July 31st.
