This April we are highlighting early literacy! The journey of learning to read and write starts long before your little one is actually ready to do either. In fact, early literacy begins in their first three years! Your child’s interaction with books and reading will provide the foundation to develop critical early literacy skills.
Literacy begins with a love of books so let’s whip out those books and teach our children the joy of reading! We’ve picked books for ALL AGES!
The Pout-Pout Fish, By Deborah Diesen
Repetitive language in story books builds oral language skills. Pout-Pout Fish’s sing-songy text repeats over and over making for a fun educational read aloud that your toddler or preschooler will repeat again and again!
