The American Academy of Pediatrics Promotes Early Literacy

12070233_s
For the first time, on June 23, 2014, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement that promotes reading aloud to children daily, beginning in infancy.

The policy statement recommends that pediatric providers promote early literacy development by: (1) advising parents of the benefits of reading aloud with young children; (2) counseling all parents about shared-reading activities; (3) providing developmentally appropriate books during their visits for all high-risk, low-income young children; (4) using different options to support and promote these efforts; and (5) partnering with other child advocates that support and promote these key early shared-reading experiences.

Click for the full abstract and/or text of the policy statement.

The 1000 Books Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity. We have already begun preliminary discussions with pediatric providers and welcome any pediatric provider to contact our organization for further information on the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program and its deployment.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App

The 1000 Books Foundation is proud to announce the release of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App.  My son loves playing with an iPhone and iPad.  The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App allows him to  “scan”  books into his permanent library.  We then just simply click the books that he has read and the App tracks his progress toward completing 1,000.  The App has the ability to track multiple readers if you are reading to more than one child (or if you simply want to track your own reading).  Best of all the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App is free.

To get the App now click here: 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App
