Studies show that mastery of early literacy concepts is the single most important factor in predicting later academic achievement for children. Further, research supports that children who learn to love reading are more compassionate, risk-taking, goal setting, and open-minded. Studies also show that family engagement has a large impact on literacy development. Join BCM and Alison DuBois-Eker, New York City public elementary school language teacher, and an independent Ambassador for children's publishing house Barefoot Books, for an interactive early literacy workshop. This workshop focuses on sharing ideas and resources for supporting literacy at home across a range of ages, from birth to grade 2.
