Family Book Adventures
Family Book Adventures are designed to provide all the support needed for libraries to host a one-to two-hour interactive family night, once in-person programming resumes. The activities in the guides are outlined for three different age groups of children: three activity stations to support preschool/kindergarten literacy skill building, an exploration table especially for toddlers, and extension activities that offer primary grade children the chance to take a deeper dive into the subject.
The purpose of these family night activities is to educate families about the importance of early literacy. The activities included in each resource guide will focus on the five research-based practices emphasized by the Every Child Ready to Read @ your library® 2nd Edition initiative: Singing, Talking, Reading, Writing, and Playing. This event has the potential to provide the perfect opportunity for partnership between early childhood programs and local libraries.
