Every Child Ready to Read

Every Child Ready to Read

Before children can learn to read, they must develop a range of early literacy skills. Learning begins the moment they are born, through language and play. Find out about the five simple practices that will help you raise a reader.

A great app for the family is Mango Languages learning courses for kids - Little Pim. Start learning today!

Book covers for Pride Puppy, Return to Roar, Diner Dogs, and Pea, Bee and Jay Lift Off. The CloudLibrary logo is beside those images.

Go Digital!

Looking for that just-right eBook or eAudiobook for your child? Try searching cloudLibrary's digital shelves for a variety of interests, subjects, and reading levels.
Whether it is an ebook or a print book, remember to engage and talk about the story together.  Interaction is the way young children learn!  Talk about the story, encourage your child(ren) to point to pictures, and ask open-ended questions to create a rich, interactive learning experience.
