ABSTRACT
Early literacy experiences play an important role in later literacy skills and school achievement. Communities offer early literacy experiences in a variety of venues to meet the diverse needs of families. The author of this article provides 4 vignettes illustrating community-based early literacy activities: (1) private group classes such as the Reading Enrichment and Development Program that incorporates stories, art, music, and acting; (2) the Reach Out and Read early literacy program based in primary health care settings; (3) family literacy programs that promote parents literacy skills at the same time as supporting children's literacy development, such as the federal Early Head Start program; and (4) read-aloud programs in bookstores or libraries. These reading enrichment experiences, while quite different in their approach, share the goal of providing a strong foundation far literacy through the joy of reading.
