Early Literacy posters for your library’s bathroom! Babies need words everyday!
ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children), a section of the American Library Association often creates wonderful downloadable products to encourage reading. Their most recent effort includes posters that focus on the 5 simple practices to provide very young kids with a foundation for learning and reading. http://www.alsc.ala.org/blog/2015/06/changing-table-initiative-come-to-fruition/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+AlscBlog+%28ALSC+Blog%29 These downloadable posters are designed to be placed in public places where young parents will see them, such as over changing tables in rest rooms. I love the concept. I love some of the posters. Have a look! Where would you put them in your library? In your community?
