I'm forwarding an email I received announcing that Language is the Key early literacy and language development videos are now available in Vietnamese, Tagalog, Mandarin, Mandarin with Chinese subtitles, Korean, and English with subtitles.
The English and Spanish Talking and Books and Talking and Play DVDs will soon be available at the State Library for you to check out via your library's ILL process. I will send out an announcement via kids-lib and libs-or as soon as they are available.

We want to let stakeholders in early literacy and language development know that we now have Vietnamese, Filipino (Tagalog), English with subtitles, Mandarin, Mandarin with Chinese subtitles, and Korean video materials available in DVD format. They were previously available only in VHS format. The sets cost $179 per language, and we allow and encourage copying of the materials.
Also, by he end of October (or hopefully sooner) we will have new free parent-child activity handouts for children in the birth-to-three year age range available for downloading on our website. They will be posted on the website next to the existing free activities for older children.
