These activities can help Every Child get Ready to Read!


There are 5 components to help develop reading readiness:

Print conventions

Background knowledge

Letter knowledge

Each week, we focus on one early literacy tip at our story times at Campbell Library.

This week's tip:

Print conventions includes knowing how to handle a book, and noticing the print.

The ways you share books with children can help them to develop the skills to be ready to learn to read.  Even babies can play with books and learn to turn pages.
