Mother Goose Programs

For over 25 years the Vermont Center for the Book has not only helped change the lives of thousands of young children and their families, but it has empowered librarians, teachers and child-care providers to use picture books, conversation, and standards-based activities to transform the learning lives of thousands of young children all over the country.

How do we do this?  In short, with our Mother Goose Programs, we’ve put into practice what children’s librarians have always known:  You can use a picture book to talk about—and learn about—virtually anything.

We are able to provide these learning opportunities through grants and donations from individuals. Please let us know if you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation! Vermont Center for the Book is a 501 (c) 3 organization.

We are proud to be one of 50 state Centers for the Book, affiliated with the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.

What’s new?
We have developed a new Civics/Social Studies program for preschoolers, their families and caregivers called Social Studies and Me! We are currently seeking funding to provide further training and programming to public libraries and Vermont communities. Please contact us if you’d like more information about this exciting program.
