The premise of the Imagination Library is registered children from birth to age 5 receive one age-appropriate book each month in the mail at no cost at all to the child or family. CCLD’s project enhances the book dissemination platform with videos and resources developed around each book. The key target audiences for which these videos are being developed are the children and their families.
Each video includes literacy tips and strategies for families to engage in together as they enjoy each book. Foundational emergent literacy and language development strategies are reinforced through activities that are fun, user-friendly, and critical in the literacy development of a child’s life. The videos are open to the public, with the hope that public librarians, early childcare providers, and preschool-kindergarten educators can also use them as resources in their curriculum.
