Family Activity Backpacks! Discover our Family Activity Backpacks that visitors can check out at select parks for their journey along the trail. Libraries across the state are offering two "Check Out State Parks" passes, each for distribution with an activity backpack containing binoculars, brochures and other educational materials to library patrons.âÄčâÄč These packs help turn an ordinary hike into a learning adventure in nature! The interactive packs will include: two large bug boxes, magnifiers, various guide books (covering birds, insects, wildflowers and pond or tree life depending on the park), binoculars and a nature journal.
Families can use the contents of the pack to let their imaginations soar or they can use some of the suggested activities for more structured exploration. The packs can help explorers of any age discover how fun the journey can be as they delve in for a closer look of the great outdoors.
Activity packs may be checked-out at the park visitor centers or office for day use and returned before heading home or back to the campsite. (less)... Read more
75,000 Free Books to be Given Away One book 4 Colorado will be back for its sixth year from April 17-May 1, 2017, when we'll give away 75,000 copies of the same book to every 4-year-old in the state through public and military libraries and Denver Preschool Program classrooms!
One Book 4 Colorado, started in 2012, gives away over 75,000 copies of the same book to each 4-year-old in the state in English and Spanish through public libraries and Denver Preschool Program classrooms.
The privately-funded program is a collaboration between Lt. Governor Donna Lynne's office, Colorado Office of Early Literacy, Colorado State Library, the Denver Preschool Program, public and military libraries statewide, the private sector, and the nonprofit and foundation communities. Modeled after the successful Preschool One Book, One Denver program, both programs stem from the idea that providing young children with access to books promotes early literacy skills and helps families serve as their children's first and most important teachers.
A child must first learn how to read, before he or she can read to learn. Working with early childhood advocates, educators, business and community leaders, the state introduced Colorado Reads: The Early Literacy Initiative in 2012, an effort to help ensure all Colorado children are reading at grade level by the third grade. One Book 4 Colorado is just one of the many community-based partnerships inspired by this movement to help ensure every child is school-ready on the first day of kindergarten. (less)... Read more
