ABSTRACT
The article profiles the One Book, Every Young Child program in Pennsylvania. It notes that the emergent literacy program is in its third year and that it seeks to increase early literacy awareness among parents, to reach at-risk children, and to provide increased opportunities for collaboration among members of the early education community. A history of the program is provided and its components and activities are discussed. The involvement of publishers, authors, and illustrators in the effort is examined and include discounts offered on the selected books and visits to schools and libraries across the state. Additional activities designed by individual libraries and schools are also presented.
