I'm working with a few IFLS-area libraries and a marvelous load of other partners on the Talking Is Teaching Chippewa Valley initiative. The goal is to empower parents and caregivers with the knowledge that the more they talk (and listen!) to their kids, the better the outcomes. It fits perfectly with Every Child Ready to Read efforts, Parents Interacting with Intention playgroups, and just about everything else we do that is encouraging and supporting parents and caregivers.
Talking Is Teaching has created some fun bundles around a variety of themes. Bundles include book suggestions, posters, talking prompts, and more. I'm guessing some of you could find a good use for this resource! Check it out here: http://talkingisteaching.org/bundles
