Books, Babies and You!

If you missed WLA member Allison Kaplan's great webinar: Board Books in Libraries: Helping Librarians and Caregivers Develop Emergent Literacy, don't despair.  It has been archived and is accessible here.  It is a power packed 55 minutes that will have you and your caregivers expertly navigating emergent literacy.

As seen in Arrowhead Library System's Monday Memo, "Allison Kaplan, faculty associate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS), discusses emergent literacy and the use of board books in early literacy programs in a webinar hosted by SLIS. Information from current research on literacy and brain development as well as information from Every Child Ready to Read (Association for Library Service to Children, 2011) was provided. Webinar viewers will gain an understanding of developing programs for children from birth to age 4."
