The Public Library Association (PLA) designed this fun calendar to boost early childhood literacy programming in libraries, schools, and daycare centers. Based on the core practices of Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library, PLA’s parent-education initiative, the calendar emphasizes activities involving reading, writing, singing, talking, playing, and counting.
