Parent Talks Podcast – Episode 11: Developing Your Child’s Early Literacy Skills

February 11, 2020  |  Parent Talks Podcast, Early Learning  |  By Encompass

Before kids can actually read and write, they already know a lot about reading and writing. Research shows that these early literacy skills are developed and strengthened beginning at birth—by talking, singing, playing, and of course, reading and writing. Many of the things you do with your children every day helps prepare them to become successful readers—such as going to the grocery store, taking them to the library, and playing with them at the park. King County Library System’s Paula Burton, Public Services Librarian, and Jennifer Loomis, Children’s Services Librarian, dropped by the Parent Talks Podcast to share their insights on building early literacy skills in children.
