|The Every Child Ready to Read @ your library (first edition 2004) initiative
was developed by the Public Library Association
and the Association for Library Service to Children
of the American Library Association. One aspect
of the initiative is to offer these scripts for
workshops for parents and caregivers of children
newborn to age five on early literacy. The scripts
were developed by researchers funded through the
National Institute of Child Health and Human Development
of the National Institutes of Health. This information
is the basis for the applications on this website.
These scripts are based on the first edition of Every Child Ready to Read @ your library.
Thank you to Carroll
County (MD) Public Library for assisting with
creation of the video presentation.
