After careful consideration of the COVID-19 situation, One Book Colorado has made the difficult decision to postpone the announcement and distribution of the 2020 book. The safety and health of our state’s four-year-olds, their families and everyone else involved in One Book Colorado is our top priority, and the best way to serve our communities is by postponing the book distribution and events.
We will announce new distribution and activity dates as soon as we are able. Check back here for updates.
In the meantime, here are a few great ways to engage in early literacy programs and activities virtually:
- Download the VRoOM app for daily fun activities that keep kids active.
- Check your local library’s Facebook page for online story times with your favorite children’s librarian. You can also go to your library’s website for early literacy games, videos, e-books and other resources. Visit www.ColoradoLibraries.org to find your local library.
- Check this list at WeAreTeachers.com of children’s authors doing online read-alouds and activities.
- See PebbleGo.com for parent resources of fun activities for young children. (This offering is available free for a temporary time and may be available at your library well into the future.)
