Mother Goose ProgramsFor 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.
