Early Literacy Resources for Parents and Caregivers

Resources for Parents and Caregivers logo

The development of language and literacy skills begins at birth. Children develop much of their capacity for learning in the first three years of life; therefore, the role of parents and caregivers is critical. The library encourages caregivers to talk, read, write, sing, and play with young children as this will help them enter school ready to learn and succeed later in life.
