Whose Shoes? A Shoe for Every Job, a photograph concept book by

Stephen R. Swinburne for children ages 3 to 6, is Pennsylvania's One

Book, Every Young Child 2011 selection. This year's program officially

kicks off on March 29, 2011.Published in 2010, this engaging book

explores various occupations using simple text and colorful

photographs. Whose Shoes? A Shoe for Every Job encourages young

readers to guess which shoe matches which job.

 

This is the sixth year of this valuable program that highlights the

importance of early literacy development in preschoolers. In its

inaugural year, the One Book, Every Young Child program won the

coveted, national John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award.

 

The collaborating agencies all support early childhood literacy

efforts and emphasizing the importance of reading early and often to

children, as well as engaging them in conversation and other

activities around books. They have worked together to develop this

multi-faceted program which is accessible to all areas and populations

of the state.

Throughout the year, there will be local events including author

visits; library and museum programming for families; and activities

for parents, early care providers and educators at www.paonebook.org.

In Clinton County, children in licensed early learning programs were

read to by community volunteers. Books were purchased and distributed

by the Clinton County Early Care and Education Initiative. (Pictured:
