April 2017 Early Literacy Calendar

By Sarah S. Wed, April 5, 2017

Happy April, everyone, whether you are an April Fool or not!

April brings some fun holidays and celebrations, like Easter on April 16, Earth Day on April 22 – hey, you can never be too young to help save the earth! – and some lesser known celebrations, too. How about celebrating National Siblings Day on April 10, National Jelly Bean Day on April 22, or National Honesty Day on April 30?

Now that we can finally smell spring in the air, let’s get ready to Read, Write, Sing, Talk, and Play with our little ones!


This month's Early Literacy calendar and links, compiled by Free Library of Philadelphia's children's librarians, is full of great suggestions that parents and caregivers can engage in with their children to help nurture and develop necessary Early Literacy skills!
