Did you know? By age 3, kids from low income families hear 30 million fewer words than those from high income families? This is called the word gap.
Babies, toddlers and preschool kids are always learning. One of the best ways to close the word gap is to talk to your kids. Every day. Talk to them about the day. Add words to daily tasks. Share stories.
This book gives parents easy, fun ways to add words to your child’s day.
Say & Play with Words is a local collaboration to build preschool children’s vocabularies in two Detroit neighborhoods - Brightmoor and Southwest Detroit.
