Learn and Grow

Young children are always developing and exploring their world. Whether it’s learning empathy, honesty and self-confidence, or reading, music and problem solving, there are opportunities and challenges at every age.

ABC Literacy

The most powerful ways to develop children’s literacy skills are also the simplest: talk to them, listen to them, read to them and write with them. When caring adults talk to kids about the world — from how recipes work to the rules of baseball — they are planting seeds of knowledge that will help kids grow into curious thinkers, readers and writers.
