Talk Read Sing

Talk Read Sing is a national awareness campaign that empowers families to be their baby’s first teacher by talking, reading and singing to them every day.

In the first years of life, a child’s brain forms one million new neural connections every second!

This is why simple, everyday interactions with young children—like describing objects seen during a walk or bus ride, singing songs, or telling stories—can better prepare them for school, and lay a strong foundation for their social-emotional development, health, and lifelong learning.
 

We are partnering with trusted messengers in the community who are committed to sharing information with parents and caregivers about the critical role they play in their child’s early brain development.
 

Talk Read Sing aims to transform everyday places where families spend time in language-rich environments. Laundromats, grocery store chains and libraries around the community will display creative materials that encourage families to talk, read, and sing while they engage in everyday activities.
 


Let's Talk About Our Community!

Parents--you can help your children develop strong language skills through everyday interactions. Try these fun activities and scroll down for additional ways to talk, read and sing with your child every day!
