• One Book Every Young Child

    Go to the One Book Every Young Child Website“One Book, Every Young Child” is Pennsylvania’s first collaborative project highlighting the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers. The participating agencies share a mission to foster early childhood literacy and show preschoolers how much fun reading can be. The early learning initiative brings attention to the ways that children develop six early literacy skills and what parents and educators may do to encourage children’s acquisition of the skills.

    Libraries will have multiple copies of the book for checkout. And of special interest to our partners in early childhood education, there is an activity-filled Traveling Trunk which they may borrow from their local library!  Please contact your local library to learn more or reserve use of the Traveling Trunk.
