If you have children between the ages of zero to five, sign up for our Tips4Kids program. Tips are tailored to specific age groups - babies (0-1), toddlers (2-3), and preschoolers (4-5). Each week during the school year, you receive a literacy tip to help your child(ren) learn to love reading! Children learn the alphabet and letter sounds; expand their vocabulary; and develop critical thinking skills.
