    Learn With Me: Early Literacy from A to Z Early literacy is more than just reading, talking and singing with your child. What you say and share has just as much impact as how it’s delivered. Whether its through books, conversations or jokes, a shared and diverse mix of activities and interactions with young children can shape the way they see, interpret and understand the world around them.

  • Thank You: Talking to Kids about Gratitude & AppreciationThank You Book

    What does it really mean to be thankful and appreciate all the good things in your life? Please and Thank You are two of the first words of manners children are taught. As they grow older and delve more into the gray areas of emotions, reminders about gratitude and appreciation are more important than ever. Gratitude helps us feel happier in our lives and with the people in our lives. November and the upcoming holidays are great opportunities to start the discussion about gratitude and thankfulness.
