Early literacy is a key element of helping children enter school ready to learn to read. According to the organization Zero to Three, the definition of early literacy is what children know about communication, verbal and nonverbal language, reading, and writing before they can actually read and write. Early literacy encompasses the child's totality of experiences with conversation, oral and written stories, books, and print.
Public libraries continue to position themselves to support families, child care providers, and communities to help every child enter school ready to learn to read.
