Talk. Sing. Read. Play.

Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" 
to the Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by 

When I visited my daughter in Ithaca, New York, I was able to view the very public support of a nonprofit community organization that promotes early literacy.  I drove my daughter crazy with frequent requests to stop the car, so I could take another picture.  She indulged me most of the time, but there's still one that I really wanted.  Our local children's librarian told me about the Family Reading Partnership. From the sign at the tennis courts, to the large murals on the buildings, to the individual yard signs, I'm a huge fan!  You can learn more about this organization at their website where you can also access a weekly column at Family Reading Corner.  
Wouldn't it be great if more communities stepped up in support of literacy for all children?


  1. This post is right up my alley, Ramona, as I am on a quest to learn more about early literacy development! Thanks for the link :-)

  2. Ramona,
    Thanks for collecting these signs - what a great community endeavor to work together to collectively guarantee educational opportunities for ALL! :-)

  3. Love these posters! I want to hang these around our school (on the outside) to help parents and other adults to remember to read! I think these pictures were worth "driving your daughter crazy." Thank you for sharing!

  4. Thanks for sharing this, Ramona! Those are some awesome posters...for a great cause. My brother went to school at Cornell and my uncle taught there - it's such a fun town (except for winter!).

  5. Wow, Ramona, these are wonderful, and no, I don't know about this organization! I'm glad your daughter stopped for you!
