FTF debuts new video for March into Literacy Month
Every year throughout March, classrooms across the nation host reading events for elementary school children. But early literacy begins before babies can talk and continues as they become toddlers and preschoolers, so First Things First is helping parents and babies get a strong start. A new two-minute video designed to show parents easy tips for reading with their babies is now available from First Things First. We encourage you to share this video with your friends and family.
