These Early Literacy practices have been found to be some of the most simple and effective ways to build children's skills so that they will start school ready to become strong readers.
Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL) is proud to support parents in these practices with a yearly list of award-winning books, the CLEL Bell Picture Book Awards.
