Ready to Read at Upper Arlington

Tony and Beth presented a Ready to Read Workshop with a focus on Storytime to Youth Services staff members of the Upper Arlington and Grandview Heights Public Libraries. After the one hour presentation of the traditional PowerPoint that introduces the importance of Ready to Read, brain research, and the 6 skills, those in attendance had the opportunity to share. Each was asked to bring a favorite storytime picture book and share how they could share one of the skills. The books they brought:

I ain't gonna paint no more by Karen Beaumont
Ducks don't wear socks by John Nedwidek
Let's play in the forest by Claudia Rueda
Wolf's coming by Joe Kulka
Caps for sale by Esphyr Slobdkina
Dinosaur vs. Bedtime by Bob Shea
The napping house by Audrey Wood
You're a hero Daley B! by Jon Blake
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. & John Archambault
Green Wilma by Tedd Arnold
In the Rain with Baby Duck by Amy Hest
Big Red Tub by Julia Jarmon
We've all got belly buttons by David Martin
Lizette's green sock by Catharina Valckx
The little old lady who was not afraid of anything by Linda Williams

Many fun titles to share with the Ready to Read Skills with children!
