Every Child Ready to Read

Every Child Ready to Read is the foundation of all San Antonio Public Library early literacy initiatives.

  What is Print Motivation?

Print motivation is being interested in and enjoying books. Children who enjoy being read to will want to learn how to read.
Birth to five:
  • Begin reading books early - even when your child is a newborn.
  • Make books sharing time special time - just you and your child.
  • Let your child see you reading.
  • Visit your public library often.
  • Make book-sharing time a time for closeness between you and your child.
