Early literacy skills begin to develop in the first 5 years of life. We used to think that children’s success at reading depended on getting the “right” kindergarten grade teacher. Now we know that your child’s likelihood for success in the kindergarten grade depends on how much (s)he’s learned about reading before entering school. Your child’s early experiences with books and language lay the foundation for success in learning to read. Let the Clearwater Public Library help prepare your child. We offer a Story Time every Thursday at 10:30AM, come on in and “Check It Out”.
