United Way Talk Read Sing

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.

When families talk, read and sing with a child – even before they can use words – they’re helping them learn. Research shows that talking, reading and singing with a child every day from birth helps build their brains as well as important language, math, reading and social skills for use in school and beyond.

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.
