We're starting an exciting new early literacy program here in the Children's Room: Book Sprouts! Parents with little ones from birth to 5 years can stop at the Children's Info desk to pick up a Book Sprouts booklet! Just complete six early literacy activities, putting a sticker on each one as you finish. These activities are designed to teach children letter knowledge, print awareness, vocabulary, phonological awareness, narrative skills, and print motivation. After completing your booklet, bring it back to the Children's Info desk to receive a special finger puppet! If you have any questions or would like to join our Book Sprouts program, just stop in at the Info Desk!
