Never too early to teach a child to read
By Amy Schardein , Kenton County Public Library
When I tell people I’m a children’s librarian at the Kenton County Public Library who specializes in early childhood work they usually ask me if I teach babies to read.
That is not what we do at the library. We teach children and their parents how to develop early literacy skills. Early literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they can read or write. When children have strong early literacy skills they will be ready to learn to read.
