The theoretical part of the paper starts with an introduction to literacy, for which there are many different definitions. In the next section, I described early literacy and its phases. I went on to describe family literacy and the importance of family literacy for children's speech-language development. I introduced family reading and described the importance of book and kindergarten as a stimulating environment for children's development. In the next section, I described the development of pre-literacy capabilities, i. e. pre-writing and pre-reading capabilites, auditory discrimination and parsing, and orientation and graphomotoric skills. At the end of the theoretical part, I described the importance of the book project in kindergarten.
In the empirical part, I presented and interpreted, both graphically and descriptively, the results obtained from the pre-literacy capabilities tests before and after performed activities. I recorded the results in a pre-prepared list of activities. My research has shown that the activities I have prepared as part of the book project have a positive impact on the pre-literacy capabilities in a group of 5-6 year old children.
