Groovy Joe: Dance Party Revolution by Eric Litwin!
The program gives FREE copies of the selected book each spring to 4-year-olds through Colorado public libraries and Denver Preschool Program classrooms. For preschools other than Denver Preschool Program classrooms, you may contact your local public library to see if your preschool can partner with the library in some way through this program. You can find all of the giveaway locations on the Pickup Locations page through April 23.
One Book 4 Colorado, started in 2012, gives away over 75,000 copies of the same book to each 4-year-old in the state in English and Spanish through public libraries and Denver Preschool Program classrooms.
The privately-funded program is a collaboration between Lt. Governor Donna Lynne’s office, Colorado Office of Early Literacy, Colorado State Library, the Denver Preschool Program, public and military libraries statewide, the private sector, and the nonprofit and foundation communities. Modeled after the successful Preschool One Book, One Denver program, both programs stem from the idea that providing young children with access to books promotes early literacy skills and helps families serve as their children’s first and most important teachers.
