ABOUT READ-TALK-PLAY

What is Read-Talk-Play?
Read-Talk-Play is an awareness campaign in Northeast Wisconsin that focuses on early education. It began in 2011 to show the role that parents play as kids’ first teachers. Read-Talk-Play was introduced by the Appleton Education Foundation and the Appleton Area School District. The program explains how simple things like story time and pretend play affect early childhood development.
