Bilingual Prime Time Preschool
Led by a storyteller and discussion leader, underserved children and their families meet in public libraries, elementary schools and other community venues to read and discuss award-winning children’s books. Discussion encourages critical and analytical thinking, helps develop connections between storybooks and real-life situations, and, in the bilingual program, encourages Spanish-speaking parents to speak and read English. Pre-school activities are offered separately for younger siblings.
Five different Prime Time formats are available, each specifically designed for: African-American families, Native American families, Bilingual for Spanish-speaking families, English-only for a diverse, multicultural group of families, and Preschoolers and their families.
