Blippi encourages early literacy at your library

If you have young kids at home, chances are they love Blippi. The YouTube sensation has entertained millions of preschoolers for years with his viral videos and catchy songs. And if you don’t know who Blippi is … well, he gets more than a billion views a month on YouTube. So, needless to say, he’s got the preschool demographic all locked up.

Now Blippi is starring in an Amazon Kids+ live-action original series called Blippi’s Treehouse. Featuring Blippi and his co-host Meekah, the show invites viewers ages 3-6 into the magical treehouse to sing, play, dance, and learn about the world around them.

Blippi and Meekah’s friend Patch even runs a branch library (get it? Because they are in a tree?)! So naturally, they love reading and want to encourage all the pre-readers out there to visit their local libraries.

In this video, Blippi has a special message for preschoolers and parents alike: The best place to learn, go on adventures, and have fun is your library. Check it out!

If you are looking for more resources on early literacy and the importance of introducing pre-readers to the library, check out the Every Child Ready to Read initiative.

Librarians and literacy advocates: The Blippi and Meekah video is available for download on the ALA website.
