Pennsylvania One Book, Families Reading Together

Pennsylvania One Book, Every Young Child

“One Book, Every Young Child” is Pennsylvania’s first collaborative project highlighting the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers. The participating agencies share a mission to foster early childhood literacy and show preschoolers how much fun reading can be. The early learning initiative brings attention to the ways that children develop six early literacy skills and what parents and educators may do to encourage children’s acquisition of the skills.
