Association for Library Services to Children & Public Library Association. Every Child Ready to Read @ your library (2nd Ed.). Chicago, IL: American Library Association.

This is the updated version of the original Every Child Ready to Read @ your library early literacy curriculum.  Significant changes include:

*         4 of the workshops (education sessions) are for caregivers and children together, but there is still 1 workshop for caregivers only if the old model worked for you.

*         1 of the caregiver and child workshops integrates science!

*         1 workshop for you to educate the rest of your library staff about early literacy so they are better prepared to provide library services to young children and their caregivers.

*         1 workshop is for you to present to staff at local organizations and agencies that may want to partner with your library on providing early literacy workshops to their clients.

*         The curriculum has switched from the 6 skills children need to develop (print motivation, letter knowledge, etc.) and now focuses on 5 activities that caregivers can do with their children to develop the 6 skills.  This means there is no jargon that was sometimes a barrier to reaching less-educated/high-risk families.

*         The early literacy research that the 1st Edition was based on is still valid so you may continue to use it and you can integrate what you liked from the original curriculum into the 2nd Edition to create workshops that work best for you and your patrons.

*         The introduction of research around constrained skills (e.g. once you know the names of the letters, you know them and there aren't more letter names to learn) and unconstrained skills (e.g. vocabulary development continues throughout our lifetime, there are always more words to learn even in adulthood).

*         The 2nd Edition is designed to be a turn-key curriculum that doesn't require the presenter to go through training-although it certainly helps to have a good understanding of the research.

When you check this kit out you may distribute the bookmarks and brochures to the people attending your workshop-the State Library will order replacements after you return the kit.
