I'd like to spread the word about a national early literacy campaign -Read Aloud 15 Minutes which is free to join, contains great information about early literacy, and has wonderful free resources to download!
Here is the info on becoming a Read Aloud 15 Minutes community partner, to help spread the message to parents, grandparents, and caregivers of the importance of reading aloud to children at least 15 minutes a day. This is a message all libraries can support!
