Fostering Lifelong Learners: Prescribing Books for Early Childhood Education
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Thursday, April 25, 2013
The Horn Book, Reach Out and Read, and the Cambridge Public Library have joined forces to present a big day focused on the littlest people.
Fostering Lifelong Learners will bring together early childhood education professionals – pediatricians, librarians, childcare providers and educators, publishers and children’s literature experts – to share their experiences and expertise on beginning literacy and promoting lifelong learning in future generations. These experts will bridge the gaps between learning experiences across the variety of settings where preschool learning occurs, from the living room to the library to the daycare center to the doctor’s office.
The day’s lineup includes leading practitioners who will discuss the methods, tools and books they use in their specific settings to develop foundational language and vocabulary skills in children ages 0 – 5. Participants will learn new ways to evaluate young children’s books, find out how to nurture healthy reading habits, identifying affordable sources of books and discover best practices for helping children be school ready.
