MGOL practices highlighted in Every Child Ready to Read Evaluation Report


An Evaluation Report on Every Child Ready to Read  was recently released and MGOL practices are highlighted from pages 33-36 (Start reading under the title, “Asides”).

MGOL is also mentioned on page 49.

MGOL has been encouraging parents to talk, sing, read, do fingerplays, and play with their children from the very start. It is an incredible honor to be included in this national report.

This week, I returned from the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) Conference in Atlanta. Summer Rosswog from Port Discovery Children’s Museum and I presented a poster session on Mother Goose on the Loose Goslings.  There was quite a bit of interest, and some suggestions of possible funding sources for further research. If you know of a Foundation or Organization or Funder who would be interested in hearing more about our early literacy program for parents with babies in NICUs, please let me know!
