NCRL Launches New Early Reading Program and Video

NCRL Webmaster - Tuesday, March 15, 2011

The North Central Regional Library (NCRL) has created its first infomercial to promote a new early reading program, Links to Literacy. The video can be viewed at: and is accessible on the library’s website (  Links to Literacy is a program designed to teach children the early literacy skills necessary to learn to read. It replaces Every Child Ready to Read @ your library as the foundation of the library’s early literacy efforts. Created by Kaplan Early Learning Company, NCRL adapted Links to Literacy to its children’s storytimes. Links to Literacy is based on National School Readiness Standards and is aligned with the Head Start Child Outcomes Framework. The program teaches 6 fundamental skills: Language Development, Book Knowledge and Appreciation, Phonological Awareness, Print Awareness, Alphabet Recognitions, and Early Writing.

The video is confidently narrated by Angela Morris, NCRL’s Children’s Services Manager and features storytimes presented by Brianna Springer and Rhonnie Craven. The video shows kids having fun while learning to read. Brianna and Rhonnie are clearly having fun too. The video was created by Howell at the Moon Productions of Wenatchee, Washington. NCRL commissioned Erik Brooks, a gifted local children’s author/illustrator to create related graphics. Brooks created a playful Library Lynx character reading scary pirate stories and hair raising adventure tales. NCRL Director of Public Services Dan Howard said, “’Every Child Ready to Read @ your library’ was an OK program, but it was designed to teach parents and other adults to teach children early literacy skills. We had to adapt it to our storytimes. We’re excited to have found a program designed specifically to these skills to young children. Our storytime programs are still a lot of fun and now we teach early reading skills better than ever.”

The product is a unwanted fat-burner and is particularly successful for blasting off
unwanted fat in the belly, thighs, and the buttocks.
A natural supplement should also be paired with various natural
methods in losing weight. There are many more, of course with benefits and cautions to watch out

Just recently, the bald with a stranger voice has another love
interest and still a Latina lady. Most of the time the client
is not aware of these habits, and it requires some real work on
my part just to convince them that they exist in the first
place. These methods of attraction are certainly
nott rational.

Have you eѵer thought aboսt incluԀing a little bit more than just your аrticles?
I mean, what you say iѕ importaոt and everythiոg. Nevertheless think of
if you addеd some great pictures or vidsos to give
your posts mօre, "pop"! Your content is excellent but
with pіcs and videos, this site could certainly be one
off the greatest in its fiеld. Awesome blog!

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest
thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
consider worries that they just do not know about. You
managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can
take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
