Early Literacy Kits on a variety of topics are available at our Library!
According to Every Child Ready to Read, children begin learning to read before starting school. As infants they begin developing language and other important skills to help them get ready to read. Five of the best ways to help children to get ready to read are: talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. All of our themed Early Literacy Kits help children in these areas. Each kit contains 4-5 books, manipulatives that encourage at least one of the five areas of early literacy, and a folder with additional activities that a caregiver and a child can do together to help build these necessary early literacy skills. You can watch Miss Erin introduce one of the kits in this video.
