Read Aloud 15 MINUTES is a national campaign to encourage parents and caregivers to read to their children daily, for the many educational and developmental benefits that reading brings. The goal of Read Aloud is to make reading aloud, for at least 15 minutes a day, the national standard in child care.
Free parent/caregiver tipsheets are available for each CTRO featured picture book. Sized to tuck into the book or hand out at storytime, the tipsheets feature simple activities to engage young children in talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing.
Download and share these tipsheets, or write your own tipsheets for new picture books, books you share in storytime, or books that are popular with families at your library.
