Designed and produced by CDM, "A Book of Children's Discoveries" is an early literacy book based on the format of an ABC Book that takes children on an alphabetical tour through the museum. Also included is a packet of foam letters that match the letters displayed on each page of the book and will assist children with their Kindergarten readiness skills.
Employees and staff members from the Museum and Juniper Networks will distribute the first round of over 1,000 books, along with free passes to visit the Museum, giving pre-school and kindergarten children the opportunity to learn the letters in the books and relate them to exhibits and experiences within the Museum.
Children's Discovery Museum and Head Start teachers have been involved in a partnership to promote inquiry based learning in their classrooms. Head Start preschool programs are operated by the Santa Clara County Office of Education and provide child care to low income families.
