  • Picture Books for Early Literacy Most picture books can be used to introduce every pre-reading skill. However, some are better for certain skills than others.

    See the list of current books below and the early literacy skill(s) they highlight. Share these examples of fine literature with your child and ask questions that emphasize that skill as you read. Ask questions like: What do you think will happen next in the story? or, Is this the front or back of the book? or, How big do you think an enormous T. Rex would be? or, What a funny, little dog! What sound would he make? or, Look at this big M. Where did we see a big, yellow M when we were out today?

    LETTERS The following books are recommended for Letter Knowledge. They highlight the alphabet and numbers.
