One Book Colorado Returns for 9th Year
Watch for winning book April 2020
Will it be The Greatest Adventure by Tony Piedrea; The Little Red Fort by Brenda Maier and Sonia Sanchez; or Very Impatient Caterpillar by Ross Burach? Although four-year-olds will have to Watch until April for the answer, they can still watch the videos of all three finalists being read (English and Spanish) in the meantime.
One Book Colorado is a statewide collaboration between Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera’s office, Serve Colorado, the Colorado State Library, the Colorado Department of Education, the Denver Preschool Program, Denver7, Mile High United Way, public and military libraries statewide, the private sector, and the nonprofit and foundation communities. The program provides every four-year-old in Colorado with a free copy of the same book – in English or Spanish – in an effort to promote early literacy skills, help families serve as their child’s first and most important teachers, and foster a culture of reading.
