More about TALK:

TALK activities build pre-literacy skills starting from birth, such as hearing letter sounds, building hand muscles and dexterity, and recognizing letters and numbers. Activities also build STEM and social emotional skills, to help parents make sure their children are fully prepared for a successful school experience.

TALK: Text to Learn for Kindergarten was developed by librarians in 2017 to help caregivers of children from birth to five years prepare their children for school readiness and success. Unlike other similar text messaging services, TALK is based on the national research-based program “Every Child Ready to Read,” which encourages caregivers to read, write, talk, sing, and play with their children every day.
