Welcome to Our Blog

We plan to use this blog to share our information with parents who are unable to attend the workshop. Those who attended can use this as a convenient tool to communicate with other parents or educational professionals by posting comments.

Our blog will include titles of books and activities that can promote literacy within the home. We will provide a list of resources that will include anything from ideas to places to visit that may help contribute to a child's literacy growth. Feel free to ask questions and get answers through our blog.

Olivia, Pigeon, Knuffle Bunny, and more

Age group: All
Literacy can be encouraged by reading different books that include the same characters. These can include books like Olivia, by Ian Falconer or Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and Knuffle Bunny by Mo Williems. There are also many more that can be purchased or checked out at your local library! Each of these characters have two or more books they star in. Often times children can find characters that they enjoy and are able to relate to.

  1. I have a couple of dozen bedtime books-stories, published and unpublished, traffic to read them is low, but growing. I just wanted to get the word out. They are fun and aid in reading development. www.readingtochildren.com
