We know that when families and care givers focus on reading and sharing stories, children are more prepared to enter school eager and ready to learn and are more successful in life. Promoting early literacy and learning is an important part of thread services to families across the state.
A focus on early learning and literacy is part of thread’s mission to empower parents and advance the quality of early education and child development. A signature literacy event at thread is our annual Book Party in the Park, held each year at the Success By 6 building’s Garden Art Park in the Mountain View Community in Anchorage. The party is a fun way to encourage literacy rich activities at even the earliest ages. Together with community and business partners, thread distributes thousands of books to children and families that attend this free community event.
Throughout the state, thread partners with Imagination Library. Imagination Library mails a free book every month to each child enrolled from birth to age five, regardless of family income. The books are age-appropriate, selected by teachers, delightfully engaging and always free. To enroll your child you can visit the Best Beginnings website at www.bestbeginningsalaska.org
thread manages lending libraries for families and early educators in Alaska. The lending libraries include videos, curriculum books, safety kits, children’s books, learning toys and games, puppets, puzzles, multi-media resources and equipment. thread’s lending libraries are located at thread offices in Fairbanks, serving the Northern and Interior part of the state, in Juneau at AEYC-SEA/thread offices serving Southeast Alaska as well as at the Anchorage office serving Southcentral Alaska.
So pick up a favorite book and share it with your family – whether in a tent, on the road or on the front porch. What better way to spend time with your family this summer while having fun learning.comments powered by Disqus
