Mission - Read
Listeners Reading Program
This mission is based on "Read" one of the five early literacy practices.Learning to read begins at birth. Parents,caregivers, and librarians can reinforce and help grow brain connections through five practices that will help a child develop the foundation for reading. Practiced regularly, these activities will help a child develop the six early literacy skills and be prepared to learn to read.The more fun a child has reading books, the more likely he will become an independent reader. Read all types of books that a child might enjoy, including pop-ups, wordless books, fiction, and non-fiction.Information taken from Colorado Libraries Early Literacy.
