AAP Literacy Kit
This updated Literacy Toolkit is an interactive web-based resource designed to help health professionals encourage all parents to read with their children. The site is meant to introduce a wide variety of strategies and tools to support the mission of promoting child development and future school success. There are evidence based tips for parents available in a variety of languages for parents of all reading levels, posters, book lists for a variety of ages and topics, and links to many helpful resources. Many of these resources can easily be adapted for use by early childhood professionals. Visit the toolkit at www.aap.org/literacy.
