Early Literacy refers to the set of skills that children need to acquire before they go to school and learn how to read. These skills include learning about rhyming, the alphabet, increasing their vocabularies, and more.
It is never too early to start working on early literacy and the Suffolk Public Library's storytimes cover all ages from birth to age 5. During storytime our friendly staff will sing songs, read stories, and lead activities all designed to help your child become ready to read.
1000 Books Before Kindergarten is an early literacy program where children ages birth through the start of kindergarten are challenged to read 1000 books with their parents and caretakers. Learn more and sign up here.
