Songs & Rhymes that Build Readers
Storyblocks is a project of Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy, working in partnership with Rocky Mountain Public Broadcasting Services. It is a collection of 30- to 60-second videos (available in English and Spanish) designed to model to parents, caregivers and library staff some songs, rhymes and fingerplays appropriate for early childhood. Each video clip includes helpful early literacy tips to increase caregivers’ understanding of child development and preliteracy needs. Videos are also divided into three age ranges: babies (birth–24 months), toddlers (2–3 years) and preschoolers (4–5 years).
