If you've poked around this website at all recently, you may have noticed some additional pages: we've updated the "Every Child Ready to Read" section to include the 2nd revision: aka the "5 Practices."
The Association of Library Service to Children has a great page of talking points for using when talking to parents of babies up to 12 months of age. It includes video links, brain information, booklists, play ideas, and more! This is an amazing resource for anyone needing ideas on how to share early literacy information with the parents of our youngest patrons. Check it out!
Note: CLEL will be posting a new Advocacy Tip every month. To see all the tips, click on the "Advocacy Tip" tag above.
In order to be a good advocate for early literacy we have to keep learning and growing. If you would like to learn and share about the new Every Child Ready to Read program, join others at “Implementing Every Child Ready to Read community of practice.” You will just have to create an account to join.
Did you have the opportunity to "attend" the recent webinar giving a sneak preview of the content that's coming in the upcoming Every Child Ready to Read revision? There are some exciting changes coming - and new content that we can all use! If you missed it, but still want to get the scoop, you can view the archived webinar. There's also a link to pre-order the new ECRR kits, which should be available in June.
