Every Child Ready to Read

The Books-Go-Round truck is in the early literacy business and as in any business we follow best practices.  Five early literacy practices -- established by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA) --  are as follows: * Talking * Singing * Reading * Writing * Playing We attempt to integrate as many of these practices as possibe in our monthly library programs for preschoolers.  Turns out, research supports the efficacy of the activities teachers, librarians and others who work with young children have been doing all along.   Visit  Kent (Ohio) District Library's helpful website  to learn more.
