Children Learn Through Stories

Talk Story: Sharing stories, sharing culture is a literacy program that reaches out to Asian Pacific American (APA) and American Indian/Alaska Native (AIAN) children and their families. The program celebrates and explores their stories through books, oral traditions, and art to provide an interactive, enriching experience.  Children and their families can connect to rich cultural activities through Talk Storyin their homes, libraries, and communities. We welcome all ethnicities to customize Talk Story as needed for your community family literacy needs.
