      Did you know that Dolly Parton created a foundation that will mail children a free age-appropriate book every month from their birth till they turn 5?!

      Touch – board pages
      Rhyme and rhythm
      Simple – easy to use

      [h=4]Year 2[/h] Continue concepts from year one and build upon them
      Repetition and predictability – generate language

      Use of real photo illustration
      Body awareness
      Nursery rhymes
      Colors, letters, numbers

      [h=4]Year 3[/h] Wordless books – build your own story (reader and child)
