Children Learn Through Stories

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.
