Learning to read begins before children start school. Young children need to develop important language and literacy skills before they can actually learn to read.
Parents of children from birth to age five are invited to attend an Every Child Ready to Read® workshop at the Durham Public Library.
This workshop will demonstrate how parents can use five familiar and easy-to-use practices to develop language and other early literacy skills in children from birth to age five.
The Every Child Ready to Read® workshop explains why pre-reading skills are so important, demonstrates how to help children learn the skills, and sends parents and caregivers home with early literacy activities they can incorporate into their family’s daily routine.
The workshop will be offered on two dates: Thursday, April 3 at 6:30 p.m. or Saturday, April 5 at 2:00 p.m. Please call the library to register. For more information, please contact Children’s Librarian Christine Michaud at (860) 349-9544.
