Hello!  You may remember earlier this month I was looking for online resources bilingual/Spanish books and early literacy skills.  Two of you shared resources you knew about, and gave me permission to share them with everyone on the RFHF listserv-thank you!

Here are two resources for bilingual/Spanish books that may help you select books to take on home visits, use during storytimes, or to conduct early literacy parent education session.

Multnomah County Library: http://pelicbooks.pbworks.com/w/page/27967337/%C2%A1Vamos%2C%20Libros%20Vamos%21
A small (but hopefully growing) section on their early literacy wiki includes bilingual/Spanish books.  If you click on the titles, they will list the skills.

Washington County Cooperative Library Services: http://www.wccls.org/library_services/listo
This also doesn't compare to ELSIE, but it does have all bilingual/Spanish books together.  No new content has been added since June 2008 and some of the titles are out of print now.  However, they plan to update the content sometime next year.

Hopefully these will help you match the right books with the right families you work with.

Enjoy,
Katie

Subject: [RFHF] bilingual/Spanish books tagged by early literacy skill


Hi!  Do any of you know of a web site that is similar to ELSIE http://www.hclib.org/birthto6/Elsie.cfm?Search=Y , which gives you book lists by the 6 early literacy skills for bilingual/Spanish books?



The RFHF online bookshelf does have all the bilingual/Spanish books tagged by early literacy skill, but it's really not comparable to ELSIE. Here is how you can use the RFHF bookshelf to find some bilingual/Spanish books tagged by early literacy skill, but, as I said, it's not comparable to ELSIE.



?         Go to: http://www.shelfari.com/o1514440154/shelf

?         Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

?         Under the virtual bookcase, you'll see the 6 early literacy skills in blue text.

?         Click on a skill and you'll see all the books that emphasize that skill, including the bilingual/Spanish titles that emphasize that skill.



Do any of you know any other resources that might help us select bilingual/Spanish books by early literacy skill or create bilingual/Spanish booklists by early literacy skill?



Thanks,

Katie
