Question Title

* Your information:

Question Title

* Briefly, what is your background/experience with early literacy? For example, are you very familiar, somewhat familiar, or not at all familiar with Every Child Ready to Read? Do you have an early childhood or education background? Are you knowledgeable about early childhood development? (There are no right or wrong answers; this is just to gauge the overall level of background knowledge of the workshop participants).

Please plan to bring to the workshop two picture books that you like and enjoy using in storytime. Also, participants will be encouraged to share a storytime conundrum and a storytime success; that is, one problem, issue, or question you have about storytime; and one successful practice or good idea to share with others. If you don't lead storytimes, you can bring any conundrum and any success having to do with working with young children and their families.
