2018 CLEL Bells Award Winners

2018 CLEL Bells Award Winners

Reading, writing, singing, talking, and playing with your children are fun ways to prepare them for reading independently. The CLEL Bell Awards are a great resource for books that support these skills. Every year, Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL) selects five excellent books to receive the awards. CLEL has also created activity sheets for each title, offering ideas on how to extend the learning opportunity beyond sharing the book. Here are the five winners by category:
