Hello, The 2015 Michigan Reads early literacy kits are shipping next Monday, August 23rd to all public library locations! They will also ship on August 31st to all schools with a K-2 classroom and on September 7th to Head Start and Great Start Readiness programs.

This annual program assists libraries and schools to encourage early literacy skills in young children and to promote parent engagement in reading behaviors. The kit contains a programming guide full of ideas to help children develop literacy skills through play-based activities based on the selected book. The materials are developed for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and early elementary aged children. The kit also includes a book, a poster, and bookmarks with tips for parents. There will be no stickers this year though.

The 2015 book is Do Unto Otters written and illustrated by Laurie Keller. In the book, Mr. Rabbit's new neighbors are otters. OTTERS! But he doesn't know anything about otters. Will they get along? Follow Mr. Rabbit as he learns how to be a good friend and neighbor by simply following the Golden Rule.
