The Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County would like to invite you to participate in Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida from January 28 - February 1, 2019!
This statewide week-long event promotes the importance of early literacy experiences, with this year's theme: Spreading Literacy, One View at a Time! The Coalition is purchasing copies of the Literacy Week book, Planting a Rainbow, by Lois Ehlert, for all SR and VPK providers in Pinellas County. Books will be mailed out at the beginning of the new year, with our goal that all local providers take part in this activity.
In celebration of literacy, we are inviting local dignitaries, board members, community partners, parents and Coalition staff to read at early learning sites throughout Pinellas who would like to host!
If you are interested in hosting a guest reader at your site, please email Linda Johnson at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include:

Number and ages of classrooms you would like read to (we will try to accommodate, but it does depend on our reader's timing)
