In an effort to support families in integrating emergent literacy into their daily routines, Make Way for Books has created an early literacy app in partnership with the Pima County Public Library.
The app, available through the App Store and Google Play, provides families with strategies on talking, singing, reading, and playing with their young children throughout the day—while grocery shopping, waiting at the doctor’s office, sitting on the bus, at home, etc. This free resource is provided in English and Spanish and includes fun family activities and book suggestions for infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children. One parent said, “My son and I really enjoy sharing the activities together when we are out-and-about.”
Make Way for Books is a nonprofit organization that provides early literacy programs and resources for children, families, and educators. To learn more about the programs and resources visit our website.
