Community strategies for promoting literacy

The Community Strategies for Promoting Literacy Flipbook provides simple activities that parents and children can do to build the skills that help to strengthen children’s reading ability. Even everyday activities—singing, talking, playing, shopping, and doing chores around the house—have the potential to boost children’s literacy by strengthening both children’s oral language development and their knowledge of the world around them. Although the flipbook was initially designed as part of a Save the Children’s Literacy Boost programming framework, others working on education or community mobilization efforts could easily use this flipbook as a resource for enhancing children’s learning, or for improving parents’ engagement in their children’s education. Because the flipbook supports children’s language and learning in a broad sense, it is a resource that could easily cut across other education sectors including early childhood development, basic education, and even emergency education contexts.
