Making a Difference--"Better Beginnings" Family Literacy Program
Allen, Nola
Australian Library Journal, v58 n4 p369-376 Nov 2009
The author describes the aptly-named "Better Beginnings" early childhood literacy project. Conducted by the State Library of Western Australia, sponsored by the WA State Government and Rio Tinto Limited, and closely monitored by Edith Cowan University, "Better Beginnings" has been successful from the outset, with proven beneficial impacts on participating mothers and children. It could easily be a national program, delivered through public libraries and other local government agencies.
