Subject: [alsc-l] 2015 CLEL Bell Awards for Early Literacy Announced!

Happy Friday and please excuse our cross-posting!

Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy and the 2015 Bell Awards Selection Committee have announced the five winning titles of the 2015 awards!

Head over to the CLEL website (at http://www.clel.org/#!2015-bell-awards-titles/c1wgl or http://www.clel.org > CLEL Bell Awards tab) for the titles and annotations, along with links to one information sheet for each book. The information sheet contains literacy tips and 3-4 activity ideas to extend the book for preschool circle times, library storytimes, or home parent/caregiver and child engagement. You can also find the 2015 shortlists, with 25 high-quality titles, from which the winners were selected.

The five winning books consist of one title in each of five categories representing an early literacy practice: Read, Write, Sing, Talk, and Play. The books, in their content, theme, or design, support caregivers' interaction with their children through early literacy practices. Research has shown that engaging children in these practices builds language skills and prepares children to become successful readers.

The Bell Awards were created in 2012 to recognize picture books that provide excellent support of early literacy development in young children.

Please direct any questions or comments to the Bell Awards Committee at clelbellawards at gmail.com<mailto:clelbellawards at gmail.com>

Thank you for all you do to promote early literacy in your communities!

Melissa Depper, Chair, 2015 Bell Awards Selection Committee
