One Book 4 Colorado Promotes Early Literacy

Written by: Children's Campaign
Date Posted: January 18, 2013

Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia this week announced the launch of the public book selection process for this year’s One Book 4 Colorado program. More than 70,000 copies of the chosen book will be distributed in mid-May to children across Colorado. The book will be available in both English and Spanish and will be accessible to children with disabilities. Lt. Gov. Garcia said the program “puts books in the hands of children and helps inspire a culture of reading in their homes.” Providing young children with access to books promotes early literacy and helps families serve as their children’s first and most important teachers.

Coloradans of all ages can get involved by voting for this year’s book selection through Jan. 31. To learn more about One Book 4 Colorado and vote for your favorite book, visit One Book 4 Colorado.
