CLEL Bell Awards

CLEL is short for Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy and offers resources focused on early literacy skills. Each year they announce the CLEL Bell Awards which includes one picture book winner for each of the ECRR 2’s early literacy skills – read, write, talk, sing, and play.

This year’s awards were announced and the website provides really great early literacy activities for each book!

ReadBooks Always Everywhere by Jane Blatt
WriteThe Crayon: A Colorful Tale About Friendship by Simon Rickety
TalkFroodle by Antoinette Portis

I’m so excited to take a look at these books, most are new titles to me, and I’m excited to see how I can use them in my programming!
