Bedtime stories are still key to boosting literacy skills

“In an increasingly technological world, old-fashioned bedtime stories are still among the best ways to bolster a child's reading skills, say literacy experts.” Great reasons for establishing a family reading time, keeping it separate and special.

Something as simple as following the words on the page with your finger as you read, and as exotic as building a family tree.

Bell Picture Book Awards

Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL) has created an award for high-quality picture books that provide excellent support of early literacy development in young children.
