Welcome to Ohio Ready to Read
Are you thinking about offering kindergarten readiness programming at your library? Kindergarten Gear Up is designed to help both children and caregivers prepare for kindergarten. It is especially targeted towards families whose children have not attended preschool.
Ohio is home to hundreds of notable authors, past and present. Jacqueline Woodson, Denise Fleming, Will Hillenbrand, Loren Long, Oge Mora, Andrea Wang, Cynthia Rylant, Drew Daywalt, Adam Rex, Daniel Kirk, Angela Johnson, David Catrow, and Tim Bowers are among the many picture book authors and illustrators who live in Ohio or have Ohio roots.
Every Child Ready to Read (ECRR), a national parent/caregiver outreach initiative, empowers public library workers to share early literacy knowledge with the caring adults in young children's lives. It was first rolled out in 2004, and is very familiar to children's services specialists. But what if you're a new children's librarian or specialist and you're hearing about ECRR for the first time?
