For Children Ages Birth to 2 years and their Caregivers

Research shows that talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing with your young child jump-starts your child’s communication and pre-reading skills.

Join the Program

Each day, you and your child read for just 10 minutes and complete one of our suggested early literacy activities to earn prizes like toys and a board book!
