The LITTLE READ WAGON is the San Antonio Public Library’s early literacy program, designed to support the development of young children’s love of books, reading and learning.
Little Read Wagon staff provide foundational literacy information and materials to parents, extended family, and caregivers of children ages birth-five years. Services are provided free of charge at public libraries, childcare facilities, schools and community-based organizations.
The Little Read Wagon mission is to empower the San Antonio community with an increased awareness of, and the tools to support, early literacy skills.
In this guide you will find information about Little Read Wagon workshops for Early Childhood Professionals. You will also find links for trainings offered by other entities and resources for your classroom. Do you have a question or an idea to share? Send us an email and we'll see what we can do!
You are also invited to explore our main Little Read Wagon guide which has detailed pages and book lists related to the six pre-reading skills every child needs to learn how to read.
The San Antonio Public Library's Little Read Wagon early literacy training (for those who work with children five and younger) is fun, FREE, and always about early literacy! For the 2018-19 school year we will offer two workshop topics: "Early Literacy Basics" especially for new teachers, and "Why? Using non-fiction in early childhood settings."
