Storytimes have long focused on children, with parents being secondary. Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library (ECCR) focuses on the parents and caregivers - supporting them in the early literacy development of their children. ECCR emphasizes familiar activities that parents already do with their children - making them intentional in support of the growth and learning of the children. Librarians model these skills (Read, Sing, Talk, Write, Play) during storytimes and give parents the tools they need at home, including confidence.
Learning to read begins at home, before we even step into a school.
Here at the NSU Alvin Sherman Library, we want to make sure that you are ready to help your child learn to read - before and after they begin school.
We have 5 skills to help you out - and you already do them at home!
We have many great books to support your Reading Skills and our librarians are happy to help you find them.
Don't forget to check out our storytimes for more support to raise a reader.
