CLEL Conference Preview

As you probably already know our annual conference is this Friday, September 13 in Englewood, CO. Friday the 13th has an infamous reputation but we hope to change that with this year's fantastic programs!

Each year the CLEL annual meeting has continued to grow and this year is no exception, branching from beyond a one room meeting into a multi-room and multi-workshop annual conference. We hope you are excited about these changes as we are.

CLEL Bell Award Nomination: Sing by Joe Raposo and Tom Lichtenheld

Sing by Joe Raposo and Tom Lichtenheld has been nominated for a CLEL Bell award in the category Sing.

Here is what the nominator had to say about this book:

"The first few pages are wordless and subsequent pages contain minimal text. As a child and adult read together, the adult can encourage the child to tell the story of the little purple bird who can't sing."
