We know from years of research that face-to-face interaction in the early years is the primary way children learn. These early interactions, like sharing books, talking, singing, or playing with children help lay the foundation for early language and literacy – essential skills for success. Professionals working in early childhood development are all too aware of how crucial the years from 0-5 are for the intellectual and emotional development of children. Not nearly enough parents seem to be aware of how crucial these years are.

Great app for the family to promote literacy!
What a great app to support literacy activities with the kids! Easy to use, provides great resources for parents to reference when looking for ideas to support a child's reading, singing, etc.
Great ideas to do with my kids!
I love the way this app gives me ideas to use with my kids. The activities look fun and can just be part of our day - not too much extra work. Love the pictures and the "why" part as well. Great job!!
Fantastic for kids
I've got a child on the way, so I've been looking into apps to help raise my future children, and this app caught my eye. A hundred activities designed to promote childhood literacy, all laid out in a creative and beautiful way. I can't wait to see what else is coming down the line!
