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.
