The fourth annual Take 5 and Read to Kids campaign, a partnership between the Ventura County Star and First 5 Ventura County to raise awareness about the importance of early childhood literacy is coming to Camarillo Library!
Take 5 encourages parents and caregivers to talk, read, and sing with young children ages 0-5 to support their early language and literacy development. Studies have proven that when you talk, read and sing to children from birth on, you promote and support early language and literacy development. 90% of a child’s brain is developed by age 5, and children are affected by experiences from early on, even before birth.
Reading early and often can give Ventura County children the start they need to succeed in school and in life. We want parents and everyone in the community to become champions of early literacy, and all it takes is reading with a young child for a few minutes each day.
