"Every Child Ready to Read® program, offered by ALA consists of three programs targeting parents and caregivers of children ages: 0-2 years-old (Early talkers), 2-3 years-old (Talkers), and 4-5 years-old (Pre-readers).
Materials are available in the form of a kit, which contains everything necessary to present all three programs. Individual items also are available, including brochures and posters that highlight the importance of helping children learn pre-reading skills beginning at birth. Spanish language materials also are available.
To order Every Child Ready to Read® materials, visit http://www.alastore.ala.org."
The program that ALA offers is similar to one that Brooklyn Public Library runs called "Brooklyn Reads to Babies". I have personally observed the success of the program and I think that sharing a book with the younger ones opens a world of wisdom and adventure. Here is a link to our program:
